Taco Stuffed Shells
"Taco stuffed shells are a fun mash-up of classic stuffed shells and Mexican-inspired tacos. Each jumbo pasta shell boasts a ground beef taco meat filling, plenty of cheese, and zesty salsa. Finish off the cozy casserole with your favorite taco toppings like sour cream, sliced olives, red onions, fresh cilantro, guacamole, and more. It’s a make-ahead, family-friendly meal that everyone at the table will love! Does it get any cozier than a pan of stuffed pasta shells full of ricotta and ground beef, seasoned with Mexican spices, smothered in a salsa meat sauce, and finished with extra cheese? From kids to grandparents, here’s why everyone loves this recipe: The ricotta stuffed shells can be assembled in advance and frozen or refrigerated until you’re ready to bake them. Talk about convenient! This recipe yields a large batch to serve 8, so it’s perfect for entertaining. If you’re feeding a smaller family, you can divide the stuffed shells between two smaller 8-inch baking dishes and freeze one for later. You get two meals with one effort. Love that! The taco seasoning adds tons of flavor to the ricotta and ground beef filling. No boring stuffed shells here!"
