8-12 oz cooked pasta (cavatapi, large macaroni, etc.)
1/2 lb ground beef
2 c salsa
2 t lime juice
4-6oz grated cheddar cheese (opt)
handful of chopped cilantro (opt)
- Cook and drain the pasta.
- Brown the ground beef. Drain the excess fat. Add in the salsa and lime juice. Stir to heat through.
- Stir pasta and meat sauce together. Top with grated cheese and cilantro if desired. You could bake it for a few minutes to brown/crisp the cheese a bit but it's not necessary.
- Serve with extra slices of lime for squeezing over the top. Would also be very nice with avocado (esp. if you omit the cheese) and green onion.
