So this was something different and fun and really turned out better than I thought!  My Little Gluten Free Girl loves bacon, I mean loves it!  My husband loves bacon too of course so this was a fun bacon cheeseburger pasta that I made in just one skillet and we added pickles on top which really was a nice touch!

Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta Skillet


Just brown up 1 pound of hamburger in a big skillet.  Add in about 1/2 of a chopped onion.


I used microwave bacon to make it a little easier, so put that in the microwave or you certainly can make bacon any way you like.  I used about 5  slices, but you could use as many pieces as you would like 🙂  Set that aside.


Add in 1/4 cup of ketchup and one 8 oz can of tomato sauce along with 2 cups of water and 2 cups of gluten free pasta. ( I used fusilli, but you could use rotini or penne or whatever pasta you have)  I also added a few drops of regular yellow mustard for a little kick.  Bring this all up to a boil with the hamburger and then bring down to a simmer and cover for about 15 minutes.


After about 15 minutes, sprinkle with 1 cup of cheddar jack cheese and the pieces of bacon and serve nice and hot with the cheese all melted on top.  Finish with a few pieces of chopped dill pickle on top for a fun garnish! YUM 🙂
