1 lb. ground beef

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, in a deep skillet cook bacon until crispy. Add mushrooms and seasoning. Cook until mushrooms brown, about 4 minutes. Add the beef and cook, breaking up into small pieces with a spatula, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add onion, cover and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add tomato paste and cook another minute. Add stock, reduce heat to low and simmer while pasta cooks. Salt the water and cook pasta until al dente. Drain, reserving ½ cup of the pasta cooking water.
