A bolognese style dish served with pasta. Bacon can be cooked with the meat.

I would also go for the Pasta bolognese - but save the Bacon for something else ;o)

so what did you end up doing?

I would have suggested a skillet dish - brown the ground beef (with some onion if you have it), drain and add the mushroom soup and maybe the onion soup packet too, with some water. Simmer till the gravy is thick. Cook some noodles and drain, then stir into the meat and gravy in the skillet. Salt and pepper to taste.
