Taco Tuesday meets Sketti Night! Well that has to be the best night of the week if you ask me!! This has been a favorite round here for a couple of years and I tweek it and change it all the time to meet my mood and the ingredients I have on hand!
We almost always have something in the kitchen to cook up this spicy wonder, and I’m sure you do too .
It’s only limited to your imagination! Olive, Corn, Black Beans… the possibilities are endless !!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 pound ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 (10-ounce can) Ro*Tel® Mild FIRE ROASTED Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies
1 tablespoon tomato paste
8 ounces spaghetti
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
black olives / limes
Heat olive oil in a dutch oven over medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook until beef has browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; stir in taco seasoning.
Drain the fat.
Stir in Ro*Tel®, tomato paste, spaghetti and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 13-16 minutes.
Remove from heat and top with cheese ( like to transfer it to a cast iron skillet and met the cheese for 4 to 6 mins at 350 but that is optional)
Cover until melted, about 2 minutes.
Serve with cilantro,olives and limes , if desired.
