How To Make Taco Stuffed Shells:
Boil the jumbo shell pasta until al dente, drain, and rinse in cold water to keep the noodles from sticking together.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Add the ground beef to a skillet over medium high heat, and saute until completely browned. Drain and excess fat.
Mix in the minced garlic and saute 30 seconds more.
Add the taco seasoning packet, cream cheese, and salsa to the skillet with the beef and stir until the cream cheese is completely melted. Let the meat mixture cool.
Stuff the cooked jumbo shell pasta with the ground beef mixture and place it into a well-greased 9×13 baking dish.
