Easy Taco Pasta Bake

After a crazy day I wanted to make  quick and tasty meal for dinner.  This taco pasta bake is easy and so delicious!  Serve it with a salad on the side and it’s a full meal.

  • 1 16 oz can diced tomatoes w/pepper, celery, onion (Hunts)
  • 1 15 oz can black beans
  • 1 16 oz jar salsa
  • 1 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 16 oz pasta (I used bowtie)
  • Jalapeno peppers (jar or canned)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cook the pasta in a large pot until it is al dente.  Drain.
  3. Brown the turkey meat on a medium heat and add the taco seasoning packet per the directions on the package.
  4. Put the pasta, meat, tomatoes, beans, salsa and half of the cheese together and stir until the ingredients are mixed (I mixed it in the same pot I used to make the pasta).  To make a spicier meal, add jalapeno peppers (I bought them crushed and just added them right in).
  5. Pour the mixture into an oven safe dish, top with the rest of the cheese and bake for 30-40 minutes.
