I made my own "take" on this for dinner last night. Since so many of the reviews said it needed a little something "more", I used this recipe as the base and made the following changes/additions: I grilled two chicken breasts in a pan with half of the taco seasoning packet until it was completely cooked through then diced and set aside. To the pasta I added two cans of diced tomatoes with chilies, the other half of the taco seasoning, chicken, a bunch of chopped, fresh parsley and cilantro, the whites and greens of 3 green onions, some sauteed diced bell peppers, a pinch of cumin and garlic powder, a few dashes of Franks Red Hot sauce, about 3 squirts of lime juice, and swapped out chickpeas for the black beans because it's what I had on hand. To all of that I mixed in some cheddar cheese and topped with more cheese, baked until cheese was melted and heated through, and served with sour cream. The bf and I both really enjoyed this. I think the recipe over all would be fine alone if you are in a hurry and don't want to "spice" it up, but for us it would have been too bland on it's own without the additions that I made. Good base to build on and a quick meal. :)
