Tacos in pasta form? Um, yes, please. I mean, the answer is always yes, right?

And if not, the answer should always be yes when it’s made in one single pan.

No joke here – everything gets dumped right in, including the uncooked spaghetti. And no, the tomatoes should not be drained. The liquid is crucial to help cook the pasta.

When ready to serve, sprinkle on that cheese to let it get all ooey gooey on top.

It’s practically a spaghetti casserole with pretty much zero work and clean-up!
