Taco Pasta

When I saw this in my google reader, I knew I had to make it! My husband LOVED it!

Stove Top Taco Pasta
Source: About a Bit of Everything

Ingredients
1 lb ground beef
1/4 c taco seasoning
3/4 c water
1 pkg low fat cream cheese (8 oz)
1 box pasta (we used rotini)
optional: cheese of your choice to sprinkle on top (we used mozzarella)

Directions
Brown ground beef in a large dutch oven. Combine taco seasoning and water. Pour taco seasoned water over browned meat, stirring to ensure all meat is covered. Simmer to reduce amount of liquid (approximately 5-10 minutes) on low. Once reduced, add cubed cream cheese, stirring to incorporate fully. Prepare pasta according to directions and drain. Add drained pasta to dutch oven, stirring to coat completely.
