One Pot Taco Pasta

Who doesn’t love a good one pot pasta? I know you guys do because my one-pot hamburger helper is one of the most popular recipes on my blog. Some nights, you just gotta get food on the table for the entire family and this is one that does just that but it also will satisfy your tastes buds and it only uses clean ingredients. And yes, even I eat this one because sometimes a little brown rice pasta is all I want after a long day. If you haven’t heard me say it before, Jovial Brown Rice Pasta is by far my favorite Gluten Free Pasta. The texture is fantastic and it only has 2 ingredients: brown rice flour and water. That’s all. Can’t beat that, huh?

As far as Skillets go, my absolute favorite skillet of all time is my Ballarini Skillet. It’s been a huge game changer for me in my cooking and I truly think that everyone should have one. I’ve tried a lot of non-stick skillets and this is one that works as good as new every single time!! Since they are a favorite of mine, I am doing a fun giveaway on Instagram this week where I am teaming up with Ballarini to giveaway 5 of the 10″ skillets! Be sure to head over to instagram to enter!! YAS. 

I encourage you to make this dish for your family this week. I just know they will LOVE it. Enjoy!
