What do you get when you crush up a taco and mix it with pasta? A crazy delicious fusion called Taco Pasta. But I’m not really asking you to make tacos and crush them up. Tee-hee. That would be silly. And strange.
Instead, I deconstructed them and added a little twist. A bowtie pasta twist with lots of nooks and crannies for catching hold of the seasoned taco meat, tomatoes, corn, cheddar cheese, sour cream, crushed tortillas and shredded lettuce.
Everything is tossed together in a warm pan where the sour cream, cheese and a touch of the starchy pasta water form a creamy sauce. It sounds a little strange on paper but it works.
If taco night has become a little boring this is a great alternative! When two comfort food favorites come together it’s hard to go wrong. Unless you’re talking about spaghetti tacos. That is so not right.
