Taco Pasta

Inspired by a facebook post of 21 one-pot pasta dishes, and this recipe for enchilada pasta in particular...

Taco Pasta

diced onions
minced garlic
4 Tbsp butter
2 Cups leftover turkey
1 package taco seasoning (or 2 Tbsp cumin, 1/2 tsp ground red pepper)
1 quart pasta sauce
1 pint salsa
3 quarts water
lg package rotini noodles

Sauté onions and minced garlic in butter in large heavy pot.  Dice leftover turkey and add to pot.  Add taco seasoning.  Stir well.

Once turkey is hot, add 1 jar pasta sauce, 1 jar salsa, 3 jars water and large package rotini noodles.  Stir well.  Cover and simmer, stirring regularly.

Once pasta is cooked through, remove from heat and top with grated cheese.  Let cheese melt and serve.

Serves six.

Boys were very pleased with the results.
