Taco Spaghetti Casserole Recipe @pinch

A Mexican/Italian dish rolled into one casserole! This is a simple recipe that is delicious and can easily be thrown together on a busy evening. The taco seasoning gives the robust flavors that you expect from taco meat. The Rotel tomatoes add a spicy kick. We loved the cooking method of the pasta; it really soaks up the seasoning flavor. While this creamy casserole is good alone, we tasted it with a little cilantro and sour cream as suggested. Delicious! A casserole recipe the whole family will enjoy. This taco spaghetti casserole is an easy prep casserole that cooks in one pot before it is baked.

Ingredients :
  • 2 pound(s) ground beef
  • 2 package(s) taco seasoning
  • 2 can(s) Rotel tomatoes and chilies, 10 oz each
  • 1 can(s) tomato paste, 6 oz.
  • 1 pound(s) spaghetti
  • 6 cup(s) water
  • 2 cup(s) Mexican blend shredded cheese
Intructions :
  • Brown ground beef in a Dutch oven. Drain fat and return to pan
  • Stir in taco seasoning
  • Add Rotel, tomato paste and spaghetti
  • Cover with 6 cups of water
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to simmer. Cover and cook until pasta is cooked and water is absorbed, approximately 15 minutes
  • Pour spaghetti into a sprayed 13x9 casserole dish
  • Top with the shredded cheese and bake at 350 until the cheese is melted and bubbly
  • You can also cook this completely on the stove top, just add the cheese after step 3 and cover & simmer until cheese is melted. I prefer the cheese to be melted in the oven until golden and bubbly. Serve with sour cream and cilantro (both optional).
