How to make Cheesy Taco Pasta

Step 2: Cook the ground beef in a large pot, breaking the meat until cooked through. When done, drain the excess grease. Then, add the taco seasoning and water. Mix well and continue to cook until the water is gone.
Step 3: To the pot, add the cooked pasta and salsa. Mix well with the seasoned ground beef until incorporated.
Step 4: Now, add 1 1/2 c. of cheese and stir well until blended. Take the pot off the heat and add the rest of the cheese over. Let the cheese melt before serving. Enjoy!
