  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp homemade taco seasoning
  • 1 cup salsa
  • (1) 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 1/4 cup uncooked pasta shells
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • Brown the beef, onion and garlic in a large skillet or stock pan. Drain off any excess grease.
  • Then stir in the taco seasoning, salsa, tomato sauce, beef broth and pasta shells.
  • Stir to combine and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Cover and reduce the heat to low and simmer over medium-low heat stirring occasionally for approximately 20 minutes or until the pasta is tender.
  • Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of the shredded cheddar cheese.


*Refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 5-7 days. 
*I love using pasta shells for this recipe but rotini or penne pasta would work great in this recipe too!
