Cheeseburger Pasta

This dinner is a real kid pleaser! Don't let the long list of ingredients deter you - it all gets thrown together in one pot and simmers while you relax after a long day. Hand out any leftovers for lunch the next day.

8oz Pasta (any shape)
2c Thrive Ground Beef or Beef TVP
2T Thrive Onions
2T Thrive Celery
2T Thrive Tomato Powder
2T Thrive Red & Green Bell Peppers
1T Thrive White or Brown Sugar
1/2c Thrive Shredded Cheese (any flavor)
1/2c Thrive Cheese Blend
1t Ground Mustard
1/2t Garlic Powder
1/2t Salt
1/4t Black Pepper
1 1/2c Hot Water

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions. Drain.

While pasta is cooking, combine remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently, until liquid is absorbed and the sauce is creamy. If the mixture becomes too thick, add a few tablespoons of hot pasta water to thin it out. Serve cheeseburger sauce over pasta.
