This pasta is creamy, delicious, and tastes like tacos! It won't heat up your kitchen since you don't have to use the oven. I need lots of these kinds of recipes this summer. It was 105 degrees here today!

Need an easy and hearty dinner recipe? Give this taco pasta a try. It can be whipped up in no time. Taco seasoning gives the dish just enough Mexican flavor, then the tomatoes with chilies add a little heat. Cream cheese and sour cream mellow out the whole dish and help provide the perfect balance of flavors. This will be a perfect weeknight meal. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
