Taco-Pasta Salad

4 oz. uncooked rotini pasta
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp taco seasoning mix
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 tbsp salsa
2 tbsp sour cream
2 tbsp cheddar cheese, shredded

1. Prepare pasta according to its package directions
2. While the pasta is cooking, brown ground beef in a medium skillet over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain and return to skillet.
3. Add water, taco seasoning and bell pepper, simmer until the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
4. While the beef is simmering, combine salsa and sour cream in a small bowl.
5. Portion out the salsa, top with ground beef mixture, and sprinkle with the cheese and sour cream mixture.
(optionally, mix it all together and bake topped with cheese long enough to melt the cheese)
