My middle gingersnap said this was her favorite meal from Jessie's menu. I admit I raised one eyebrow at the thought of an Italian-style taco, but they were so simple and good! I liked the beef/sausage combo.
1/2 pound Italian sausage
1 pound ground beef (I just used 1/2 pound)
1 (16 ounce) jar tomato pasta sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
8 taco shells, heated
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
Combine the ground beef and Italian sausage in a large heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat until evenly browned. Drain off excess grease, and season meat with Italian seasoning.
Heat the pasta sauce in a saucepan over medium heat until heated through. When the sauce is warm, stir in the sugar.
Fill taco shells with the meat mixture, spoon pasta sauce over, and top with mozzarella cheese.
