10 Servings 30 min Cook
1 Cup, chopped Onions
1 Clove Garlic
2 Tbsp Dry Taco Seasoning Mix
1 Cup Fresh Cilantro
16 Oz Ground Beef
3 Oz Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Pepper
8 Oz Whole Wheat Pasta
1 Can (15 oz) Tomatoes
Chop the onions, mince the garlic, chop the cilantro, and drain the tomatoes.
Bring a large pot of water to boil.
Cook pasta according to the package directions.
Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet or sauté pan, cook the ground meat and onions over medium-high heat.
Add in the diced tomatoes, garlic and taco seasoning and let simmer over medium heat for about 3-5 minutes.
Stir in the cooked pasta, cream cheese, sour cream and remaining pasta water.
Continue stirring until the cream cheese is melted and the sauce is well blended.
Simmer for a few minutes over medium heat to reduce the sauce, if needed.
Toss in the cilantro right before serving for some fresh color and flavor, if desired.
