Tacos and pasta come together in this zesty dish my family demands. It's cheesy, a tad spicy, and you can ring that dinner bell in no time. —Amber Willard, Slinger, WI

"This dish is delicious and a family favorite. It definitely needed more taco seasoning than the recipe called for. I always make it as a double batch and add at least a package of taco seasoning to it. YUM!!"

"This recipe was delicious in my whole entire family loved it and ate all of it up. The only thing I did different was used a whole package of taco seasoning Instead of the 1 teaspoon. I will be doubling the recipe next time so I have some to freeze because it was so quick and easy to put together and with 6 serving recipe it was not enough."
