People of all ages enjoy this Mexican-flavored noodle bake. When my sister-in-law cooked for a youth camp several years ago, she multiplied the recipe. It was an instant success. —Karen Buhr, Gasport, New York


  • 2-1/2 cups cooked Taco-Seasoned Meat
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) spiral pasta, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup sour cream
