Ok, I needed something that didn't take much effort, and when I say not much effort I mean taking extra time to search for a recipe. This one has been raved about on The Knot thanks to iheartkeith, and I finally decided to give it a whirl.
* 1 lb ground beef (or ground turkey, or ground chicken) * 1 packet taco seasoning * 15 oz. tomato sauce * 8 oz. seashell pasta * 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened in microwave * 1/2 cup sour cream * 8 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1. Brown ground beef, drain. Add taco seasoning and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes. 2. In the meantime, cook pasta according to directions. Drain. 3. Mix softened cream cheese and sour cream in separate bowl. 4. Spray bottom of 9x13 pan. Put pasta in bottom of pan. 5. Spread cream cheese mixture over pasta. 6. Spoon ground meat mixture over this. 7. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top. 8. Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes before serving.
My notes: I cut the entire recipe in half and it was perfect. Other than that...I'll just let this last picture do the talking:
