Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside.

In the same skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Discard drippings. Drain pasta; add to the skillet. Stir in the soup, water, beef and bacon; heat through.

Remove from the heat and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve with barbecue sauce and mustard if desired.
