This is a very popular Mexican pasta bake. Unlike traditional pasta dishes, this one doesn’t require any pasta sauce. Taco pasta bake is one of the most brilliant combination of Italian pasta and Mexican taco. Next time when you are going to make pasta, instead of the original stir-fry way, try to bake it. Taco pasta bake is definitely the one you have to try! It’s not only very easy to make, but also very delicious as well!!
