One Pot Taco Pasta

One Pot Taco Pasta is quick and easy plus it is delicious and very filling. The Taco Seasonings are perfect for the ground beef and pasta combination but the secret is using good beefsteak. This dish is full of flavor, textures and comes in at a budget price which makes it ideal for normal meal planning. The stewing of the ingredients and the broth make for some wonderful kitchen aromas that are appealing and pleasant. The taco Pasta keeps well when refrigerated and is a great selection for lunch on the go. I generally only publish items that were a hit with my focus group and this taco pasta was a teenager favorite. I enjoyed this recipe and recommend you try it at least once to see for yourself how delicious it really is.
