Creamy Taco Mac

It's my turn on this recipe that's been making it's way around the blogosphere. I spotted it through my friend's blog, Lauren's Kitchen, which she in turn got it from Delish. And I can't agree more, it was delish. And very family friendly. I'm happy I was able to make this one and I recommend it to everyone!

1.25 lbs ground turkey
12 oz macaroni plus 1 cup reserved pasta water
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
1 packet of mild taco seasoning
3 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
salt & pepper
1/2 cup cheddar cheese

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook pasta per directions. Reserve one cup of pasta water.

Over medium heat, brown ground turkey until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning and diced tomatoes. Allow to simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add cooked pasta, reserved water, cream cheese and sour cream. Give it a good stir until cheeses are melty and incorporated. Simmer over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt & pepper, as desired. Top off with cheddar cheese for extra cheesy goodness.
