Cheesy Taco Pasta Bowls

I love tacos and usually is what I order when we go out to eat. There are a ton of different proteins you can order; fish, chicken, pork, beef and more. Why not get crazy and turn them into a pasta?

I love this pasta made by Al Dente. It’s lower carb, calories and WW points but you would never know that when you eat it! It’s my favorite pasta which if you know me you know that I have never been a big pasta fan. I am beginning to become one as I make a ton of different flavored recipes.
