Mexican Taco Pasta

 My friend Sarah has recently discovered her kitchen.  She's headed into marriage here in about two months.  I'll be sharing the details from the shower we threw for her last week, but first, here's a recipe she shared with me.  Uhhh.  Yum!  This new hobby of hers is good for me....or is it bad?  I don't know, but this one is a keeper for sure! 
Mexican Taco Pasta Recipe
Ingredients:  1 lb ground beef, 1 pkg taco seasoning, 4 oz of cream cheese, 14 jumbo pasta shells, 1 1/2 c. salsa, 1 c. taco sauce, 2 c. Mexican blend cheese (shredded), chopped green onions, and sour cream for topping. 
Instructions:  Cook meat, and add the seasoning packet and water as the package instructs.  Add the cream cheese, stir until it's melted and blended together.  Set aside mix to cool. 
Cook pasta as instructed.  Drain. 
Add salsa to the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan.
Stuff shells with meat mix, and line in the bottom of the pan. 
Cover the shells with the taco sauce.  Cover the whole dish with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Uncover and add cheese.  Bake an additional 10-15 minutes until the cheese is completely melted. 
Serve topped with onions, black olives, sour cream, additional salsa.
