Itali-Mexi-Nese Skillet

This was just a concoction I made up with stuff around the house... we were hungry and needed to eat. It actually turned out pretty tasty despite the fact it has italian, mexican, and chinese ingredients haha. You can definitely adjust the proportions based on what you have to use up. I didn't measure anything... so everything below is a guess.

Itali-Mexi-Nese Skillet
Serves: 3

1/2-3/4 pound ground beef
1/2 onion, diced
1/4 cup soy sauce (or less)
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 box of shaped pasta (I used rigatoni)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon butter
8 oz. cheese (I used monterey jack and cheddar blocks, 4 oz. cubed each)
1/2 cup salsa

1. In a large skillet, cook beef, onion, soy sauce and garlic. Drain.

2. While beef is cooking, boil some water and cook your pasta according to package directions.

3. Throw the butter and cheese into the beef mixture to melt (smaller cubes are better). Add the salsa and sour cream until hot. Then stir in the pasta. Top with some extra shredded cheese if you like, serve.
