I made this over the weekend and it was very easy and good! It's a nice change from the Italian pasta.
2 C of uncooked pasta (I used fusilli)
1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 onion -- chopped
1 clove garlic -- minced
1 14.5 oz of diced tomatoes -- drained
1/4 C of cream cheese
1/2 C of sour cream
1 packet of taco mix
Boil pasta until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of cooking liquid and drain the rest. Set aside.
In a skillet, brown meat until done. Drain well. Add chopped onions and garlic and cook for a couple of minutes. Add tomatoes. Cook another two minutes or so. Add taco seasons and simmer for 5 minutes. Add cream cheese and stir until melted. Add sour cream. If the sauce is too thick, add a bit of the reserved cooking liquid. I added about 1/4 C. Simmer until smooth. Check for seasonings and adjust accordingly. Toss sauce with cooked pasta. I served this with grated sharp cheddar. We didn't have any leftovers!
