What do you get when an Olive Garden receives Taco Bell’s shipment of ingredients?
There’s a short little clip about the steps of taco pasta… as you can see it’s pretty darn simple. It’s also a great roll-over meal to have after you make tacos!
What you’re going to need (for 3-4 servings)
-2 cups dry pasta (whole wheat works great)
-1/2 cup ground beef
-1/2 cup beans (can have more, this is just what I had after taco night)
-1/2 cup corn (again, give or take depending on what you have)
-2 tomatoes, chopped
-1/2 cup salsa
The steps to supper:
1. Boil pasta until nearly done, then drain all but aout 1/4 cup of the water
2. Heat the salsa, tomatoes, corn, beans and beef
3. When hot, add to the pasta and place on a burner
4. Reheat, stirring often. It may not seem like the sauce is thick enough, but it should thicken as you heat – if not you can always add a little sour cream or cream cheese to thicken
~Serve with chopped lettuce, shredded cheese, sour cream-anything you’d regularly add to a taco!
Perfect for a quick and easy (not to mention healthy) supper, and kids LOVE it!
