Taco Spaghetti Bake
Recipe By :JoAnna Lund
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :1:00
8 ounces ground beef, extra lean
1 cup tomato sauce -- 1 - 8 oz can
1 cup salsa -- chunky
1/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon taco seasoning mix
2 cups spaghetti -- cooked and drained
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, low fat -- Kraft 2% - grated
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/2 cup Dorito's WOW Nacho Chips -- 1-1/2 oz, crushed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8 by 8 inch baking dish
with butter flavored cooking spray. In a large skillet sprayed with
butter flavored cooking spray, brown meat. Stir in tomato sauce,
salsa, water and JO's taco seasoning. Add spaghetti. Mix well
to combine. Spread mixture into prepared baking dish. Bake for
20 minutes. Evenly sprinkle cheddar cheese over top. Continue
baking for 15 minutes. Place baking dish on a wire rack and let
set for 5 minutes. Carefully spread sour cream over top and
garnish with crushed Nacho chips. Divide into 6 servings.
NOTE: I double this and bake in a 9x13 pan for potlucks or
planned leftovers. Would freeze well without the sour cream
topping & nacho chips.
