Talk about an easy and quick kid-approved dinner! It tastes like taco because of the packet of taco seasoning, sort of like mac-n-cheese because of the pasta and cheese, and is so easy to make. I got the original recipe from Just A Pinch HERE. I renamed it and kept the recipe the same and know you will love it as much as I do.
