  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
  2. Melt some butter in a frypan and saute onion until translucent. Set onion aside for the moment.
  3. Add a little more butter and brown the mince well.
  4. Add onions back to the frypan with the taco seasoning and 100ml water. Add cayenne and chilli and stir.
  5. Add cream cheese and sour cream. Add a little milk if needed to make it runnier.
  6. Meanwhile, cook the pasta. Drain and add to the beef mixture. Stir well to coat the pasta.
  7. Transfer to an ovenproof dish and top with grated cheese. Cover with foil. Bake, covered, 20 minutes, then remove foil and bake until cheese topping is browned. Serve!
