Creamy Taco Spaghetti


I love a great spaghetti dish and I'm all about variations. This taco spaghetti puts a fun spin on the traditional pasta dish and is quick and easy to make. It has become a popular meal in my house. If you have little ones you can always substitute the rotel for regular diced tomatoes. Either way, I'm sure your family will love it as much as mine does!

Creamy Taco Spaghetti
Serves 4

Ingredients
12 oz spaghetti, cooked
1 lb lean ground beef or turkey (I used 93/7 turkey)
2 tbsp. taco seasoning
1/2 yellow onion, diced
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
1 can rotel, undrained
1 cup reduced far shredded Mexican cheese blend
sliced green onions, optional


In a large sauce pan brown meat and onions. Drain. Add in the taco seasoning and rotel. Turn heat to low and stir in the cream cheese and shredded cheese. Stir until well blended and creamy.

Top spaghetti with meat mixture and sprinkle with extra cheese and sliced onions. Enjoy!
