Creamy Beef and Shells


  • 8 oz uncooked pasta (about 1/2 of a box – we used shells, but any pasta will work)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated


  1. Bring a pot of salted water (it should taste like the ocean) to a boil. When boiling, add your pasta
  2. Meanwhile, add your ground beef to a large skillet over medium high heat with some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and cook until well browned
  3. Lower the heat to medium and stir in your tomato sauce. Season to taste and let simmer until the pasta is done cooking
  4. When the pasta is done, drain it in a colander and set aside
  5. Remove the meat + sauce from the heat and let cool for a minute or two. Stir in your cream cheese and cheddar
  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir in your cooked pasta. Serve!
