taco pasta

so the other night i tried a new recipe that i found here. taco pasta. i have been wanting to try this recipe for a while, since one of my roommates in spain used to make something similar. i found this recipe online because i couldnt remember the way my roommate used to make it! its really simple which is great because our kitchen isnt what you would necessarily call functional.

what you need is (as seen above):
ground beef, an small onion, tomato, a bag of pasta shells, a clove of garlic, taco seasoning, 3 oz of cream cheese, and some cilantro.

what you do:
chop up the garlic, onions, and tomato.
put some water to boil and cook the pasta.
brown the ground beef in a big pan. once brown, add the garlic and onions.
add the tomato and then the cream cheese and cooked pasta.
stir everything together until the cream cheese makes a sauce. add some water if its too thick.
serve in a bowl and add some cilantro on top.
voila! thats it!
super easy right?

sorry about the quality of these pictures .. i think my camera is on its last legs. time for a new one?

anyway, taco pasta was a huge hit as friends were invited over to try and now there is none left.
