    This is a creamy, Mexican-inspired pasta bake recipe with a bit of kick from cayenne and chilli powder.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 knob butter
    • 1 small onion, diced
    • 500g beef mince
    • 1 packet taco seasoning
    • 100ml water
    • pinch cayenne pepper
    • pinch chilli powder
    • 100g cream cheese
    • 200ml sour cream
    • milk, as needed
    • 200g penne pasta
    • grated cheese, as needed

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    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!

    I found this recipe on Pinterest about 2 years ago and have been making it ever since. It's one of my boyfriend's favorites! I change it up sometimes with what I have on hand. I also make my own taco seasoning. The recipe is great as-is.  -  24 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
