Taco-Night Pasta

Submitted by: BRYZON

Introduction

I found this recipe in Family Circle magazine, but made a few changes of my own. It's quick and makes a lot of food. Great for feeding the whole family. My version is actually healthier than the magazines and tastes just as good if not better. To make this a little more fun, substitute the fusilli with wagon wheeled pasta.

  • My boyfriend gives it a 4 and My daughter and I say 3. It was defenitly different. I cooked it with lean ground beef instead of turkey and I cooked chopped onions with it. Next time I think I would try a pkt of taco seasoning instead of cumin and chili powder. - 4/27/09
