This Easy Taco Bake is a pasta dish that tastes like a taco! It can easily be prepared in advance and freezes very well.
People always assume that I am this fantastic gourmet chef and always have been. The truth is that I was a terrible cook. Eating, yes, I was always good at it. But real cooking – not so much.
It’s like people think that because you have a lot of children, you are a wonderful parent. Unfortunately, that’s not true either. But with practice comes experience, and just like knowing when your butter is browned, not burned, you also learn to predict the triggers of a two-year-old’s temper tantrums.
I like this Easy Taco Bake for its simplicity and homemade taste. My kids loved the taco batter, so I knew this version would be a welcome addition. Many meals can be too difficult and complicated and this one will be a family must-have, I promise. And it freezes very well!
