Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a rolling boil; stir in the rigatoni and cook at a boil uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 13 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the ground beef, garlic, onion, and bell pepper in a large pot over medium-high heat until the ground beef has browned and the vegetables are tender, about 7 minutes. Pour in the tomato sauce and salsa; season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in the Cheddar cheese and cream; cook and stir 3 minutes, then stir in the sour cream until evenly blended. Add the drained pasta and stir until heated through.

This should be called Southwestern Pasta Surprise! I kinda expected a bit of italian flavor even with the salsa but there was nothing italian about it. However it was really good! Not gourmet by any means but a nice hearty super fast and easy yummy meal. I used whole milk instead of cream because thats what I had and it seemed to work just fine. Thanks for the idea!
