Cheeseburger Pasta

From the Campbell's Easy Family Favorites cookbook:
Campbell's Cheeseburger Pasta
1 lb. ground beef
1 can Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) Campbell's Tomato Soup
1 1/2 cups water
2 cups uncooked medium shell pasta

COOK beef in skillet until browned. Pour off fat.

ADD soups, water and pasta. Heat to a boil. Cook over medium heat 10 minutes or until done, stirring often. Serves 4.
WHAT WE DID/ WOULD DO: We doubled the recipe and cooked in a 12 inch Dutch Oven. We added a couple heaps of broccoli for some added vegetable content. If I had thought of it I would have diced up some onion to cook with the ground beef. I would have substituted the Pepper Jack Soup for the cheddar but they didn't have it at the store I went to. Then when Matt stopped in wearing a sombrero... well too late to make it Mexican then, it was already cooking.
The recipe says serves 4 but we polished off the whole pot(recipe doubled) between 5 of us.
Matt just stopping in - Scott waiting to eat

Topped with shredded cheddar and garlic pepper

Oh, no thanks I don't want any ... gobble, gobble, gobble
