Creamy Taco Pasta Bake

Tonight, we tried another recipe from Full Bellies Make Happy Kids.  You can find her recipe at Full Bellies Make Happy Kids - Creamy Taco Pasta Bake.  I altered it, just a tiny bit to fit what we had here and it was a total success.

Creamy Taco Pasta Bake



Ingredients:

1 lb ground beef
1 can rotel, undrained
1 packet taco seasoning
1 brick of cream cheese (8 oz)
1 lb penne or any other pasta you choose
shredded mozzarella cheese (I used about a big handful)
provolone cheese slices


Directions:

Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package.
Brown the ground beef.  When done, drain add the taco seasoning and rotel.  Stir well and let simmer for about 2 minutes.
Add the cream cheese and stir constantly until it's all melted.  It helps to cut the cream cheese into small cubes.
Add the cooked pasta and about 1 cup of the pasta water.  Mix well and add the mozzarella cheese.
Preheat the oven to 450.
Put the pasta hamburger mixture into a baking dish and cover the top with the provolone cheese slices.
Bake for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is all melted.
