It's that time of year that we all like--Fall and the cooler weather...This recipe will help you celebrate the end of Summer and the beginning of Fall. This recipe is from my Kitchen Chatter Newspaper column 1974.Michigan.
1Cook and stir ground beef in a large skillet until no longer pink; drain off grease. Stir in pasta, taco mix, water, garlic,oregano, Worcestershire sauce and pepper;Bring to a boil,cover; stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
2Uncover and cook 5 minutes longer; cool 5 minutes.
Place remaining ingredients in a large bowl; toss ground beef mixture with cheese and lettuce. Serve immediately or , if desired, leave out lettuce and cheese.
3Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 4 hours. Then serve on a bed of lettuce and sprinkle cheese over top and a dollop of sour cream on the side. I also like to serve with Mediterranean Pita Crackers on the side or corn chips on top.
