My wife the other day said she was going to make taco pasta. I looked at her like she was crazy.  Taco pasta?  You mean taco seasoning and noodles?  That sounds weird.  Well that, and a few extra ingredients make this dish delicious.  In fact, it became our 5 year old's favorite meal!

Here's what you need:

3/4 Bag of Ziti Noodles

1 pkg taco seasoning

1 lb ground beef

1 cup water

1/2 pkg cream cheese

1 1/2 cup shredded cheese

Boil the pasta until al dente.  Brown ground beef and drain.  Add seasoning to ground beef with cup of water.  Cook seasoning in for 5 minutes.  Next, add cream cheese to beef mixture.  Cook until melted and remove from heat.  Put cooked pasta into casserole dish, top with beef/cheese mix.  Add shredded cheese and mix together.  Cook uncovered in 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.

It's great!  The only thing I will do different next time is add a cup of onion.  Enjoy!
