Creamy Taco Mac

I stumbled upon this at another food blog. It looked easy so I thought I would give it a try. We have had so much chicken lately, we needed a little beef. Very yummy!
Creamy Taco Mac
1.25 lb. ground beef
8 oz pasta + 1 cup reserved pasta water
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
3 TBSP mild taco seasoning
3 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
Cook pasta according to package directions, reserving 1 cup water.
Brown beef ( i used very lean so i did not drain) add taco seasoning and tomatoes. Simmer 5 minutes. Add pasta, cream cheese, and sour cream. Stir and simmer. Add pasta water if needed to thin sauce.

  1. Hey Diane! Could you make this with pureed tomatoes instead? My boyfriend's son will only eat pureed tomatoes, nothing with chunks/bits/pieces of tomato. Thanks!

  2. I am sure you could use crushed tomatoes. You may not need to add water if using crushed tomatoes. Save water until the end and see if it needs any to thin the sauce.
