  • Sombrero Pasta Salad

    This makes a lot, and tastes like a taco salad.

    1 (16 ounce) package spiral shaped pasta
    1 lb ground beef
    3/4 cup water
    1 envelope taco seasoning mix
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    1 large green pepper, chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 medium tomato, chopped
    2 (2 1/4 ounce) cans sliced ripe olives, drained
    1 (16 ounce) bottle Catalina dressing

    Cook pasta according to package directions.

    Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until meat is browned; drain.

    Add water and taco seasoning; simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes.

    Rinse pasta in cold water and drain; place in a large bowl.

    Add beef mixture, cheese, green pepper, onion, tomato and olives; mix well.

    Add the dressing and toss to coat.

    Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
