Taco bake

 Such a tasty dish.Such an ugly picture. Such a tasty dish.

Don't judge this recipe by my poor photography attempt. Don't judge this recipe by my poor photography attempt. Trust me.


1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 packet taco seasoning
15-ounce can tomato sauce
8 ounces medium shell pasta (I used bowtie since I'd run out of shells)
8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese


Brown and drain the ground beef. Mix in the taco seasoning and the tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions.

Mix together the softened cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Set aside.

Lightly mist the bottom of a 9x13 pan with oil. Pour the pasta into the bottom of the pan, then smear the cream cheese mix on top.

Spoon the sauce mix onto the top, then sprinkle with cheese.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.

  1. Hey, your picture looks way better than mine! Comfort food is not supposed to be pretty anyway! Glad you liked it.

  2. [...] the next day that I’ve ever had. It would make an absolute killer batch of wet burritos or cheesy taco pasta bake, too. I am never going back to those little packets [...]

  3. I made this recipe and it was soooo good. Great week night dinner and would be perfect for a potluck!!
