I made this for dinner tonight and it got rave reviews from the hubby and kids so I thought I would share this easy recipe. It fed 6 people and hubby had 2 servings.  I served it with crusty bread and a green salad.

1 cchopped onion
1 csweet corn (frozen)
4 ozdiced green chile peppers, drained
1 pkg
  2/3 c
taco seasoning (1.25oz)
1 lbpenne pasta (1 box)
4 ozsliced black olives, drained
1 cshredded monterey jack cheese (divided)
can of diced tomatoes
sour cream
fresh cilantro
Brown the ground beef and onion in a large skillet. Drain. Meanwhile, cook your pasta of choice according to the package directions.  I used ziti.
Add the corn and green chilies to the beef mixture. 
Add the package of taco seasoning mix and 2/3 cup of water and stir. Add 1/2 C of the cheese and the olives.
Simmer for 5 mins.
Drain pasta and add to the meat mixture. 
Serve topped with the remaining shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, sour cream and cilantro.
