It's amazing how you can take some basic ingredients that we've all eaten a million times. Put them together in a cassarole. And have it just turn out amazing!
I knew this would be good. I mean, we're talking pasta, cheese, taco meat and sour cream. What's not to love!!!
I was amazed by how MUCH I liked it though. It wasn't just good, it was fantastic!
We all absolutely loved this scraped the pan clean!
My only regret is that I didn't make a double batch so I could have leftovers this week!!
This was part of my ground turkey freezer cooking day! Check it out for more great freezer ideas!
