Reynolds Kitchens Tip

Place leftovers in a Reynolds Disposable Heat & Eat container for a quick and tasty lunch the next day.


  • 12 ounce package jumbo pasta shells
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • ¼ cup taco sauce
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • Green onions, for serving
  • Tortilla chips, for serving


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F.

Step 2

Cook pasta according to package instructions. Gently toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Set aside.

Step 3

In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground turkey until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning and ¾ cup water. Bring to a simmer and let cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Stir in cream cheese and taco sauce until the cream cheese has completely melted.

Step 4

Spread about ¼ cup of the salsa in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Fill pasta shells one at a time with 2 - 3 tablespoons of the ground turkey mixture. Transfer to the baking dish. When all shells are done, top with remaining salsa and shredded cheddar.

Step 5

Bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.

Step 6

Top with chopped green onions and crumbled tortilla chips before serving.
