I really enjoyed this dish, it was a nice change from all my other taco casseroles and stuff. I used 1 1/4 lb. ground turkey since it was on sale, didnt miss the beef at all. I have a young baby so shells would have been too time consuming for me so I used the lasagne noodles that you dont have to cook first. I added a 30 ounce can of black beans to the meat mixture because they are healthy and stretch the meal even further. I did double the cream cheese and spices since adding the beans. I also spiced the meat up a little by adding in some cumin, (a fav of mine) cayenne, garlic powder and onion powder. I used the la victoria taco sauce also. (the whole jar) The lasagne noodles turned out perfect and didnt need the butter since they werent even cooked yet. I just put a little of the taco sauce down on the bottom of the pan before layering the ingredients. This turned out great and we will be eating it again. Thanks!!!

This has been one of our family favorites for a long time! I've even played with it and turned it into a lasagna. Mmm, think I'll have to make this one for dinner tonight!

I had this exact recipe in my recipe box for over 2 years waiting to be tried! It was AWESOME!!! my husband and i are big taco/nacho fans and this was a nice change. It had a great flavour and was super easy to make. even my 3 year old and 1 1/2 year old gobbled it up. instead of chili powder, i used 1/2 tsp seasoned salt and 1 tsp cumin. (you can also just buy a taco seasoning mix and use that instead of the chili powder.) this is going to be my new "potluck" dish. this served with a homemade guacamole would be incredible!

These were very tasty and different from the normal pasta casserole dishes I'm used to making, since you use shells. My shells fell apart while cooking, I must have cooked them too long, but it didn't effect the taste! I had to use enchilada sauce because I didn't have taco sauce and I forgot to top them with sour cream. But my family loved it! Thanks!
