Taco BakePosted: May 1, 2008
This is SUPER delicious! My mouth waters just thinking about it. It is a HUGE favorite on the Detroit Knot Board. Lindsay was kind enough to share this recipe with all of us! It doesn’t photograph well, but OH SO GOOD! Sorry no picture!
1 lb. ground round-I used gr. turkey
1 package taco seasoning
15 oz. can tomato sauce-I used canned, diced tomatoes with jalapenos
8 oz. seashell pasta
8 oz package cream cheese (softened in microwave)
1/2 c. sour cream
8 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Brown ground beef, drain. Add taco seasoning and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, cook pasta according to directions. Drain. Mix softened cream cheese and sour cream in separate bowl.
Spray bottom of 9 x 13 pan with Pam. Put pasta in bottom of pan. Spread cream cheese mixture over pasta. (This is kind of hard to do. Just dollop spoonfuls of the mixture about an inch apart and spread the best you can.) Spoon ground beef mixture over this. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
Bake @ 350 for 30 minutes. Cool about 15 – 20 minutes before serving.
