Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    •1 pound ground beef (or ground turkey)
    •1 package low-sodium taco seasoning
    •4 ounces cream cheese
    •16 jumbo pasta shells
    •1 1/2 cups salsa
    •1 cup taco sauce
    •1 cup cheddar cheese
    •1 cup Monterrey jack cheese


Tips

There is enough of the meat mixture for more shells, but my pan would only fit 20.


Directions

1.Preheat oven to 350°.
2.In a pan brown the ground beef; add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Add cream cheese, cover and simmer until cheese is melted. Stir together and mix well. Set aside and cool completely.
3.While ground beef is cooking, cook the pasta shells according to package directions; drain. Set shells out individually on cutting board or baking sheet so that they don’t stick together.
4.Pour salsa on bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Stuff each shell with 1-2 tablespoons of the meat mixture. Place shells in 9×13 pan open side up. Evenly cover shells with taco sauce. Cover dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
5.After 30 minutes, add shredded cheese and bake for 10-15 more minutes with the foil removed.
Serve with any additional toppings (not in nutritional info)

Serving Size: Makes 4 servings of four shells each.
