Fast Meal

Do you need a fast meal so you can get back to all that scrapbooking and stamping? LOL Heres' a good one.

Now it isn't the most beautiful to photograph, but it is easy and makes a lot. It is my Pasta Taco Salad. My neighbor made this for us when we moved in and now I make it for those who move too! Like my friend Becky that moved out of the neighborhood a couple weeks ago. UGH! lol So I decided to make her a batch and kept some for us too (it makes a lot) Here's how to make it.

Brown 1 pound of hamburger. Add taco seasoning according to package directions. Then let cool. While that is simmering, boil some pasta (as much as you like) I like the curly pasta so the seasonings hang on to it. Then you just take everything you put in a taco. There isn't specific measurements (I hate it when I don't have exact, but if I can do it, anyone can) Just add some sour cream, can of sliced olives, beans (if you want, I think beans are yucky so they don't go in, shredded cheddar cheese and I also add Mango Peach Salsa from Costco (YUM) That has the tomatoes, onions etc in it along with a sweet taste.
You just add and stir. When you are ready to serve take some Doritos and smash them and put on top.
You serve it cold, so that is another GREAT reason it is perfect for people moving. You don't have to worry about warming it up. So whip up a batch for your family, a new neighbor (or old one) and then get back to scrapbooking! LOL
