TNT Tex-Mex Pasta Bake

This is one of Kiersten's favorite dishes -

Tex-Mex Pasta Bake

1 9 oz. pkg frozen creamed spinach ,defrosted

1 pkg. 80z, cream cheese, softened

1 (16oz.) penne pasta cooked according to directions on pkg.

1 (16oz.) jar salsa

1 lb. ground beef, cooked,drained and crumbled*

1 (14.5oz) can tomato sauce

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 cups shredded mexican blend cheeses

Preheat oven 400

Combine spinach and cream cheese in medium bowl. Combine pasta, salsa, beef and tomato sauce and chili powder in a large bowl.Spoon half the pasta mixture into a 13x9 baking dish; top with spinach mixture.Top with remaining pasta mixture; Cover and bake 30 minutes.
Uncover and top with cheese and bake an additional 10 minutes or until bubbly.
Makes about 8 servings

*Kiersten is a vegetarian so I substitute defrosted Morning Star crumbles when I make this for her.It works well.
