I found this recipe at one of my favorite recipe blogs - Emily Bites. I love her recipes. They are healthy alternatives but using real food and she even features Weight Watchers Points Plus. I adapted the recipe just a little bit to suit our taste and this recipe got the Hubs' seal of approval! Super easy and flavorful!
This was a great new recipe for our collection. I offered to do a side of refried beans or something but Hubs said this was plenty. And trust me...he ate his fair share!
Whole Wheat Pasta (we used penne but next time I'm using shells), Taco Seasoning, Rotel (actually 2 cans), Cheese, Light Sour Cream. And of course I forgot to include the hamburger meat.
|Brown about 1lb of hamburger meat. Next time I am adding diced onions for more flavor.|
When finished, drain and rinse.
Side Note: While you are browning the meat, go ahead and prepare pasta according to instructions.
|Add 1 oz pack of taco seasoning, 1/4 cup water, and two cans of Rotel (I didn't drain for extra spice).|
|Add pasta. Looks yummy already!|
|Add about 1 1/2 cups of your favor cheeses and allow to melt. I used the Taco mix but suit your own tastes.|
Add 1/4 cup of Sour Cream. Add salt and pepper to taste.
|Ready to eat!! Hubs added more sour cream to his bowl but I did not.|
