Sharon Srock's Taco Pasta Shells

TACO PASTA SHELLS!

**This is a great recipe if you are looking for a familiar taste presented in a different way. For an additional change, try serving traditional tacos with 1 pound of ground meat prepared with the taco seasoning, water, and cream cheese. I hardly ever serve tacos any other way.***
 
            INGREDIENTS:

1 envelope taco bell taco seasoning
¾ cup water
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend, divided
20 baked tortilla chip scoops, coarsely crushed
