What's for dinner? Taco Pasta

New start, New school, New YOU!
This is a Body for Life recipe and can be found in Eating for Life cookbook. It's one of our favs - the kids even ask for it.

8 oz. rotini pasta
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp. Taco seasoning mix
4 Tbsp. salsa
4 Tbsp. sour cream
4 Tbsp. shredded cheddar cheese

Prepare pasta according to its package directions.
While pasta is cooking, brown beef until no longer pink. Add water and taco seasoning to beef. Simmer until it thickens, stirring occasionally.
You can either combine the sour cream and salsa or leave them separate. I leave them separate because the kids don't like salsa.
Once beef is ready and pasta is cooked, mix together in one pan.
This is 4 servings so divide it up in 4 bowls and top with sour cream, salsa, and cheese.

This is a balanced meal with a portion of carbs and a portion of protein. Enjoy!!
