Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the shell pasta, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, until just slightly firm to the bite, about 13 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet; drain fat. Stir in the taco seasoning and water; cook over low heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir the refried beans and 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese into the taco meat. Spoon meat mixture into prepared pasta shells.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup salsa over the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange filled shells over salsa. Spoon remaining salsa over shells.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with sliced green onion and 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese. Serve with sour cream.

This recipe was very good. I omitted the green onion and sour cream. I added grated cheddar cheese to the top on the last ten minutes of baking. Also, I may have lost my mind, but I couldn't find an oven temp anywhere on this recipe so I just went with 350.

I made these tonight, with plenty of left overs...I really wanted to like this recipe, however it just lacked flavor, nothing special. If I make it again, I will add cumin to the meat, and maybe some black olives?

This recipe was yummy. I think that if I were to make it again I would not bake it for 40 minutes. The shells were a little crispy. I guessed and put the oven at 350 since it was not noted on the recipe. Also I will put tomatoes on top next time!
