This recipe comes was inspired by a recipe I found on Lovestoeat. I made some changes to use what we had on hand. The picture doesn’t do this meal any justice. I’m posting it, but please know it tastes much better than it looks.
1 lb. ground turkey
1 package taco seasoning
1 can RoTel
8 oz. small pasta
4 oz cream cheese (softened in microwave)
1/4 c. sour cream
8 oz. shredded queso fresco
Brown ground turkey, drain. Add taco seasoning and RoTel. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, cook pasta according to directions. Drain. Mix softened cream cheese and sour cream in separate bowl.
Spray bottom of 8 x 8 pan with Pam. Put pasta in bottom of pan. Spread cream cheese mixture over pasta. (This is kind of hard to do. Just dollop spoonfuls of the mixture about an inch apart and spread the best you can.) Spoon ground beef mixture over this. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
Bake @ 350 for 30 minutes. Cool about 15 - 20 minutes before serving.
