Taco Twist Bake

People of all ages enjoy this Mexican-flavored noodle bake. When my sister-in-law cooked for a youth camp several years ago, she multiplied the recipe. It was an instant success. —Karen Buhr, Gasport, New York

    Very easy & delicious. I did not boil the meat. Browned the meat, peppers, & onion; drained well. Stirred in the seasoning mix & tomato sauce. Simmered 10 min. Combined the meat mixture & pasta mixture together.
