Stovetop Taco Pasta - Recipe

My niece found this recipe circulating on Facebook and made some for her family.  I had a few bites and immediately knew I needed to make it for my peeps, with just a few tweaks. 


 1 box large shell macaroni

 1 tablespoon canola oil

 1 pound ground beef

 1 yellow onion diced

 2 tablespoons garlic salt
 2 tablespoons taco seasoning

 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

 3/4 cup water

 1 cup jarred salsa

 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese shredded

 Salt to taste

 Pepper to taste


Cook the pasta according box directions, drain and set aside.

In the meantime, place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. Once it starts sizzling add the ground beef and brown well.  Drain.

Add the onion;  stir and cook for 1 minute.
Add the taco seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Add 3/4 cup of water, stir and cook until water is gone.

Add the pasta to the pan. Add the salsa and cheese. Stir to combine.
Serve immediately.
