Taco Twist Casserole

Here is the base recipe, but I have been known to tweak it at times.

Taco Twist Casserole

1 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning mix (I use my homemade mix)
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
3 cups rotini, cooked and drained
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 cup sour cream

Brown beef; drain.  Stir in seasoning mix, tomato sauce and green pepper.  Bring to a boil, remove from heat.  Combine with cooked pasta, 1/2 cup cheese and sour cream.  Pour into greased casserole dish.  Top with remaining cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Made a change last night...

Although the menu showed a pork roast for dinner, I decided to use the leftover chicken and make chicken and dumplings for dinner.

It was good, even if I say so myself. :-)
