Taco Pasta Bake


I’m so glad that I stumbled across this recipe on pinterest. Yes, I know…. another pinterest recipe. If you haven’t gotten on this website yet, I suggest you do and take a look around. There’s all sorts of things to look at on there, and you don’t just have to be a girl to like pinterest. Pinterest can be for men as well.

There was nothing wrong with this recipe at all and I didn’t change a thing to it. However, the cream cheese I added in had scallions in it, and I didn’t know whether or not it enhanced the flavor of it at all. The next time I make this, I’m going to throw different taco toppings on top like avocado, lettuce, and tomatoes. That would make it even better. This dish almost reminded me of a taco mac and cheese. I’ll definitely be making this recipe again. :)
