Boil the jumbo shell pasta until al dente, then drain and rinse in cold water to prevent sticking.

In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef until fully cooked. Drain any excess fat.

Add minced garlic and sauté for an additional 30 seconds.

Incorporate the taco seasoning packet, cream cheese, and salsa into the skillet with the beef. Stir until the cream cheese is completely melted. Allow the meat mixture to cool.

Fill the cooked jumbo shell pasta with the ground beef mixture and arrange them in a well-greased 9×13 baking dish.

Sprinkle the top with shredded taco blend cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Garnish with freshly chopped green onions before serving. Enjoy!
