- Add 1” of water to a medium pot and place a steamer basket inside. Add the potatoes and carrots, then steam on Medium-High until tender; about 8 minutes.
- Meanwhile, add the beef to a large pot and brown over Medium heat. Drain and add the onions and garlic to the pot, sautéing until tender. Add the bacon crumbles, tomatoes, steamed vegetables, heavy cream, broth, cheeses and seasonings. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Stir in the cooked pasta and garnish with bacon crumbles, dill pickles and chopped onion.
