Easy taco pasta

Hi there! I wanted to share a favorite dinner recipe of mine. I found a similar recipe from Cooking Light and adapted it to what I had at home. I love that this is so easy, but still looks like it took a lot of work to make.

You will need:

2 cups of dry pasta (I used the spiraled whole wheat)

I lb. ground beef (I used Laura’s 92% lean)

I package of taco seasoning  (I used kroger’s 25% less sodium)

1 can of diced tomatoes  (I used fire roasted)

As much shredded cheese as you want

Any other add-ins you like (beans, corn, avacado to top, cilantro, etc.).

Steps:

Brown ground beef. Once it is cooked through, add in the taco seasoning, a little water, and the tomatoes  (also, if you have other add ins, now would be the time for those). Let simmer (covered) on low. While that is simmering, cook your pasta according to package.  Then add the pasta into taco mixture, top with cheese and simmer an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted! I served this with cornbread muffins and it was awesome. My husband loves this, too! Plus we always have leftovers for lunch the next day! Yum!!

Hope you enjoy!

Carly
