I was hungry for tacos one night, but didn't have any shells. I did have some leftover noodles. It's not too bad. I've even tried it with chicken and that's delicious, as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cook the pasta as directed on the package and drain.
  3. While spaghetti is cooking, over medium heat, combine tomato sauce, Ro-tel, onion, beef, and Velveeta cheese in a saucepot, stirring until the cheese melts.
  4. Stir in the cooked spaghetti. Pour into a sprayed 9x13 pan and sprinkle with the shredded cheddar. Bake uncovered for about 30 minutes or until the edges bubble.

YUM! I made this for dinner tonight & will definitely make again. I may add some salsa next time. Thanks for an easy & delicious meal:) The cheese on top really set it off!

Woooohooo! Found something even my picky kids (2 and 5) liked that isn't related to chicken nuggets, hot dogs, or mac n cheese. This will definitely become part of the rotation! I made with a pound of burger since I had no idea how much 2c was and I fried up the onion with it instead of adding them separate. I used 8oz (dry) spaghetti noodles and it worked out perfect for us(:

Yeee-Haaa Ya'll!! Now this was just a scrumptious little dish that is just perfect for throwing together and sloppin' a big helping in a bowl just in time to plop on the couch and watch your favorite TV drama!! I needed to make enough for 6 people, plus a little for lunch leftovers for the next day so I did change up just a few things. I basically doubled everything...used whole box of angle hair pasta, about 2 lbs of ground beef, one large yellow onion, and about 16 oz tomato sauce and 2 cans of Ro-tel tomatoes. For the cheese I ended up using about 3/4 of a whole brick of Velveeta because I did not have any shredded cheddar. I cubed it up into small pieces and stired it in to the angle hair at the same time I was incorporating the meat/sauce mixture. I did add one ingredient...I was looking for a really strong "chili/taco" flavor so I added on package of dry taco seasoning did the trick! I ended up with a pretty good sized 9 x 13 pan of bubbly ooey gooey pasta...and the smell, WOW! Some of us took it one step further and plopped a big ole' spoonful of sour cream on top which I thought was the "icing on the cake" so to speak. I am so glad you got hungry for those tacos one night, but didn't have any shells!! :) Thanks for this great recipe!! :)
