Creamy Taco Mac

All sorts of variations of taco mac blog updates have been posted on the What's Cooking? board on TheNest.com.  I decided to follow the fad and do a blog update of my own.  This dish turned out really well although the recipe could probably feed 4 hungry people.  Although I don't mind having plenty of leftovers for lunch!

Ingredients:

1.25 lbs ground turkey  (can use ground beef)
8 oz dry pasta + 1 cup reserved pasta water
1 can (14.5 oz) petite diced tomatoes
4 Tbsp mild taco seasoning (one packet)
3 oz cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
salt & pepper
cheddar cheese

Directions:

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook pasta per directions. Reserve one cup of pasta water.

Over medium heat, brown ground beef and drain off fat. Add taco seasoning and diced tomatoes. Allow to simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add cooked pasta, reserved water, cream cheese and sour cream. Give it a good stir until cheese is melted and incorporated. Simmer over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt & pepper, as desired. Top off with cheddar cheese for extra cheesy goodness.
