This recipe is one of my all time favorite pasta dishes. It’s easy to put together and taste delicious. As much as I love cooking good ole Southern food, every now and again I like to fix Italian and Mexican dishes and I usually squeeze one or the other in at least once a week. Something as simple as a plate of taco’s can put a smile on my husbands face rather quickly, for me I prefer a good plate of pasta over taco’s any day of the week.
