My family's new favorite dish.






Ingredients

    * 12-18 large pasta shells, cooked
    * 1 lb ground beef
    * 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
    * 1/2 cup water
    * 1 onion, chopped
    * 1 1/2 cups salsa, divided
    * 1 cup grated cheese, divided (I use cheddar or a Mexican mix)
    * can tomato sauce
    * chili powder, to taste
    * green onion, for garnish

Directions

  1.Brown ground beef and drain.
  2.Add seasoning, water, onion, and 1/2 cup of salsa and 1/4 cup cheese.
  3.Mix together remaining salsa, tomato sauce,and chili powder.
  4.Spread a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 12 baking pan.
  5.Fill each shell with the ground beef mixture and place in pan.
  6.Pour remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle on the rest of the cheese on top and garnish with green onion. Cover and freeze at this point or proceed to baking if you want to eat right away.
   7.Defrost overnight and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. (Cook from frozen for 2 hours at 300°F).
   8.If desired sprinkle additional cheese on top after baking and return to oven for  5 minutes longer or until cheese melts.

this is probably a really stupid question, but why do you have to freeze it before you cook it???

This looks freaking delicious and I want to make it. Smiley

maybe the pasta will loose its shape?
I would eat it straight away, but with these dishes they always taste better the next day  Grin

Sorry, you don't have to freeze it.  The recipe was written if you want to do once a month cooking.  I should have edited that part out.

Yummy!  I bet some chorizo instead of the ground beef would be tasty too.
