This is one of those quick and easy meals, that I can whip together in a few minutes when I am short on time and have hungry little mouths to feed. I got this recipe from my friend Stephanie a couple of years ago. It is a huge hit with my boys. Connor my oldest LOVES pasta and TJ my second oldest LOVES tacos–so this dish pleases them both. It is like tacos in a pasta form. You can adjust how spicy it is with the type of enchilada sauce and salsa you choose to use. Perfect dinner for a busy night!
