Cheesy BBQ Beef Farfalle

Looking for more ways to please my husband Mike's "simple man" palate, I once again turned to Progresso's new Recipe Starters.  I had some of the creamy three cheese cooking sauce remaining from the swag I received at BlogHer Food '12, and it was easy to find a simple recipe on Progresso's website.  Their recipe uses rigatoni, but I went with farfalle instead.  It's such a pretty pasta!  

He and I both enjoyed it.  It made more than enough for the two of us, and the leftovers were just as good the next day.

  • 3 cups uncooked farfalle pasta
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 18-ounce can Progresso Recipe Starters creamy three cheese cooking sauce
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Cook and drain pasta as directed on package; set aside.
  • Meanwhile, in large skillet, cook beef and green onions over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain.
  • Stir in pasta, cooking sauce and barbecue sauce.
  • Heat to boiling.
  • Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat; sprinkle with cheese.
  • Cover; let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
