This was a hit with my entire family! Not an easy task with 5 kids. My DH asked what it was called, and heartily agreed.
I did make a few changes, though, both in recipe size and ingredients. I used 2 lbs of ground beef & 2 boxes of whole grain rotini (about 27 oz).
I always season my ground beef while browning, usually with salt, pepper, onion, and garlic, to taste.
After draining the fat, I added 1/2 chopped green bell pepper, 1 can diced tomatoes, and 1 8oz can tomato sauce.
I also added 1/2 bag frozen, chopped spinach, which I do to a lot of dishes.
I used a 16oz container of light sour cream and 4oz of low-fat cream cheese. I also chopped up a few green onions, since I had them on hand, and threw them in.
I mixed everything together, including pasta, then put it in 2 pans and topped with 2 cups of fiesta blend cheese.
I have made it in layers before and mixing it all together seems to work better for us.
