Muy Nacho Stuffed Shells

  • Currently 4/5
12 oz jumbo shells, uncooked
3/4 lb ground beef
1/4 cup quick-cooking oatmeal, uncooked
1 envelope low-sodium taco seasoning
1 cup water
1 can refried beans
1 cup shredded cheese
2/4 cup jarred salsa
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1. Prepare pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, cook up the beef in a large skillet until browned; drain well and add the oatmeal. Add taco seasoning mix and water; simmer 5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in beans and cheese.
2. Cook until smooth and well-mixed. When pasta is done, drain well. Fill shells with beef mixture (1-2 tablespoons per shell). Combine salsa and tomato sauce in a saucepan. Cook until heated, stirring occasionally.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread 1/2 cup sauce over the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan that has been lightly greased. Place filled shells side by side on top of sauce; pour remaining sauce evenly over shells. Cover with a tent of aluminum foil; bake 35 to 40 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Cover and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish as desired with green onions, salsa, cheese, etc.
