Taco Pasta

Every Thursday at our home is International Night. We rotate the type of international food every week, although Italian and Mexican are our regulars. Last night I made a new dish, Taco Pasta. While I was making it my husband kept saying it looked like beefaroni but let me tell you this tastes nothing like it! This is delish!!!!! I hope you enjoy it!

taco pasta

•1 pound box penne noodles
• 1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey
• 1 packet taco seasoning
• 1 cup water
• 1/2 package cream cheese
• 2 1/2 cups shredded cheese

1. Boil pasta (I cook a minute less than the recommended time) since the noodles will also cook in the oven
2. Brown the ground beef or turkey and drain
3. Mix taco seasoning and 1 cup water with the meat
4. Let simmer for a few minutes

5. Add cream cheese to the meat and stir until melted. Remove from heat
6. Place pasta in casserole dish, mix in 1 cup cheese

7. Pour the meat mixture on top of the noodles and mix
8. Top with remaining cheese
9. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes
