Hey guys! This morning I’m going to be on AM Northwest demo-ing this tried and true family favorite! It’s a recipe I posted way back in June last year that my family gobbled right up! It’s a great go-to meal when you’re short on time…which I seem to be ALL the time.
I’ll be posting the video once I have it in case you missed it! Until then, here’s the printable. Have a great weekend! 🙂
AM Northwest and Cheesy Taco Pasta
- 1 lb ground beef I used 80/20
- 1 packet taco seasoning reduced sodium is a good idea
- 1 1/2 cups southwest salsa
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 lb pasta
- 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup cream
- salt & pepper to taste
- Bring water to boil to cook the pasta. Salt it and cook pasta until al dente.
- While the pasta is cooking, in a large skillet, cook ground beef, breaking apart as you go. Once thoroughly cooked, drain meat and run under hot water to remove any fat. Wipe out pan with paper towel and place back on heat.
- Pour cooked beef into hot pan with taco seasoning, salsa and water. Simmer until pasta is finished cooking.
- Once pasta is cooked, drain well and pour into skillet. Top with cheese, cream, salt and pepper. Stir until cheese melts and noodles are coated in sauce. Serve immediately.
