Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb ground beef or ground turkey!
  • 8 oz dry pasta + 1 cup reserved pasta water
  • 1 can 14.5 oz petite diced tomatoes, drained (I used Rotell)
  • 4 Tbsp mild taco seasoning
  • 3 oz lite cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup lite sour cream
  • cheddar cheese optional

Instructions
 

  • Cook the pasta according to the directions. Drain the pasta but reserve one cup of pasta water.
  • While the pasta is cooking, over medium heat, brown the ground beef. Add taco seasoning and diced tomatoes. Simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.
  • Add cooked pasta, reserved water, cream cheese and sour cream to the cooked beef (turkey). Cook over medium heat until the cream cheese is melted and all the pasta is piping hot. Simmer over low heat for 2-3 minutes.

Notes

Use whole wheat pasta, ground turkey, lite sour cream and cream cheese to keep this dish as healthy as possible.
