This easy skillet dish is everything we love about a bacon cheeseburger tossed with pasta for a hearty, family-friendly dinner. Steak grill seasoning is a great way to add extra flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked cavatappi pasta
  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon Montreal steak grill seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups sharp shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 6 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
  • Chopped fresh parsley leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 3
    Reduce heat to medium. Stir grill seasoning, milk, cheese and ketchup into beef; continue stirring until cheese is melted and mixture is well blended.
  • 4
    Stir in pasta and 4 slices crumbled bacon; cook until sauce thickens and mixture is heated through, stirring occasionally.
  • 5
    Sprinkle with remaining 2 slices crumbled bacon and parsley.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you don’t have Montreal steak grill seasoning, you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • tip 2
    Change up the pasta to whatever you have on hand. Rotini, rotelle, wagon wheel or penne make good options.
