Taco Pasta, Take 2
Itâ€™s no secret that I love easy and fun pasta dishes so itâ€™s about time I add another one to the olâ€™ blog. I already have a recipe for what I call taco pasta but this one is slightly different. This one includes a delicious cheesy sauce that makes it more like macaroni & cheese. Yum!
I had worried this would be too spicy since it calls for taco seasoning and Rotel tomatoes but both of my boys gobbled it up without a problem. My oldest has already staked claim on the leftovers.
I hate cooking pasta in a dish, you know what I mean? Like, the pasta is cooked in the Rotel and with the ground turkey in this one and I always â€“ and I mean always â€“ end up with burnt pasta stuck to the bottom of my pan when I do this. So I would recommend watching it closely and not being scared to add more liquid if it gets low. Or if you donâ€™t mind washing an extra dish, boil your pasta separately.
Also, if youâ€™re looking to stretch this one, you could easily add another cup of macaroni. This was a lot of meat for only 1 cup of pasta and I would definitely add another cup next time I make it. Which will be very soon!
