Taco Casserole

I chose recipe #5 Taco Casserole
We really liked this! When we make it again we'll put in lots of black olives...we were stealing them out of our salad to put in it=)
The recipe doesn't say but we put in the diced tomatoes at the same time as the salsa.
Taco Casserole

3 c. uncooked bow tie pasta
1 lb ground beef
1/4 c chopped onion
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 jar (16 oz) salsa
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 envelope taco seasoning
2 c nacho cheese tortilla chips (doritos) crushed

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook beef and onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the cheese, salsa, taco seasoning. Drain pasta; stir into the beef mixture. Transfer to a greased 11x7x2 inch baking dish. Cover and bake at 350 for 20 mins. Uncover and sprinkle with tortilla chips. Bake 10 minutes longer or until heated through

you're my twin!!! lol.. I like the kind of pasta you used, i think it'd change the kind i used (bowtie) and I also put the salsa and tomatoes together. I think it was kinda spicey though, maybe I should have used a milder spice..
OLIVES!!! good lord.. LMAO
