The cold weather is fast approaching and a big bowl of spaghetti is comfort at it’s best on a cold snowy day. I seasoned the beef with taco seasoning to spice things up. I also added jalapenos, garlic, onions, hot sauce, fresh lime, etc. I also added some sour cream and it was delicious. Of course, I topped it off with a 3 cheese blend and served it with extra lime.
I absolutely loved this taco style spaghetti. I love Barilla spaghetti and their marinara sauce. I grew up on it, so when Barilla reached out to me to work together it was a no-brainer. I hope you cook the spaghetti al dente and use all these fresh ingredients I listed to make the most amazing taco style spaghetti.
