5 Genius Secrets to Easy & Delicious Dinners


Baked Taco Pasta

If you love our no-boil pasta bakes, you will love this taco flavored recipe. It’s full of flavor and it’s safe to say that it is one of our favorites! A winning quick and easy pasta recipe.

Taco seasoning is one of our favorite spice blends. It is a mix of cumin, paprika, oregano, chili powder, garlic, onion, cayenne, salt and pepper. If you don’t have a favorite store bought taco spice blend, you can definitely make your own. Just note that a lot of store bought ones have a lot of extra ingredients, so be sure to get a good quality mix. These are two of our favorites and use in a lot of our recipes, Siete Foods, and Penzey’s Spices.

For everyone asking about this beautiful bow tie pasta, you can find it here.
