Author: Canadian Living

It's usually not difficult to get kids to eat a taco, nor will it be for this meal that's packed with the same flavours and has fun curlicue noodles. Teens and tweens just might be inspired to cook this one themselves.

  • Portion size 4 servings



In large skillet, brown ground beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with back of spoon, until no longer pink. Drain off any fat.

Add chili powder, dried oregano and chopped green pepper; cook for 1 minute. Pour in pasta sauce; simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain and return to pot, reserving 3/4 cup (175 mL) pasta water.

Add meat sauce; toss to coat, adding pasta water if desired to moisten. Serve garnished with sour cream, Cheddar cheese and tortilla chips.
