Less fat to drain with a leaner option, but the flavour may be slightly different than with 80% beef. Put taco seasoning in the skillet and stir.

Reduce the heat and cook the pasta for 15 minutes until al dente, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking and keep it cooking evenly.

While resting, pasta absorbs liquid, thickening the sauce. If you cooked the pasta in the sauce, reheating may dry it out.

Mix in 1 cup of shredded cheddar and grated mozzarella cheese on low heat. End heat and serve.
