2 pounds lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cups water
1-1/2 cups penne rigate pasta (or pasta of your choice)

1 cup salsa (I used Pace Thick and Chunky hot)
Salt & pepper to taste

1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef and onion until meat is no longer pink and onions are tender; drain.
2. Add the water and bring to a boil; stir in pasta. Cover and simmer over medium heat until pasta is tender; about 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Stir in the soup, green chilies, olives, salsa, salt and pepper; cover and simmer until hot and bubbly. Remove from the heat; sprinkle cheddar cheese over meat mixture. Cover and let stand until the cheese is melted. Makes 6 servings.
