Taco Pasta

I got this from Supermoms recipes, but did find the original after a lot of research. I modified hers a bit. Main reason I am putting this on my blog is so you don’t have to scroll through a ton of other stuff to find the recipe. Here is her slightly modified version of the original recipe. She
repined it from The Girl WhoAte Everything who repined it from Fake Ginger Each one is a bit different. Check them out also. Supermom said It was quick, easy, and most importantly, DELICIOUS.

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 8-12 ounces medium pasta shells
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 packet (4 tablespoons) taco seasoning (might want to not use all)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Cook pasta according to the package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water. Set aside.

In a large skillet cook the ground meat and onions over medium-high heat. Add in the diced tomatoes, garlic and taco seasoning and let simmer over medium heat for about 3-5 minutes.
TIP: She said " I used the entire taco seasoning packet. It was a bit overpowering, Consider cutting back on the seasoning packet."
Stir in the cooked pasta, cream cheese, sour cream and remaining pasta water. Continue stirring until the cream cheese is melted and the sauce is well blended. Simmer for a few minutes over medium heat to reduce the sauce, if needed.
