I love the other one pot meals I make so it was time to come up with another one. Since Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner I decided it was time to try an idea that’s been kicking around in my brain for a while now, Taco Pasta. It is all that taco-y goodness with everyone’s favorite…pasta! I cooked this entire meal in my Calphalon Saute Pan which made for super easy clean up.
This recipe was a huge hit! It will become a regular in our monthly meal planning rotation for sure. I love that this recipe can be whipped up in under 45 minutes and that it dirties only one pot. It is a perfect busy weeknight meal for the whole family.
