Mason’s Taco S’ghetti

Renée G.


The Scout leader taught this recipe to the boys at Boy Scout Camp. For extra service credits they were to make the dish and serve to their families then have their family members each complete a review sheet.

Mason made dinner for us last night and I pinched his recipe. He also made a tossed green salad and garlic bread.
