Enchilada Pasta Bake Haiku: "Wow, this makes a ton! (I used spirals, and not shells.) Nice, make-ahead meal." I prepped this for a crowd of kids chowing dinner b4 trick-or-treating, since it was a basic, not too spicy, noodle dish. It was gobbled down (well, they left plenty of room for Halloween candy), and w/ plenty of leftovers for the adults, since this made ALOT. My personal taste resulted in me adding hot sauce, since it was on the mild side, but for ease of preparation, and for items typically on hand, it was a dinner success.
Too dry for my taste. I'll make it saucier in the future.
Very delish! It's simple and quick to make. I used hot & spicey taco mix. I would suggest that if you like it hotter.
I thought that this bake was pretty good, and a quick weeknight meal.
My boyfriend hates buying the mixed spice packs because they are a rip-off, so we concocted our own tace seasoning, and it turned out great. Two cups of cheese seemed like a lot to put on the top of this bake, so we only did about a half cup, but if we were to make it again would use a whole cup because it does bake down into the casserole.
This was awesome! My husband and I both loved it. I added a couple things based on the other reviews. Since some people said it was a bit dry, I added about a quarter cup of cream cheese to the tomato mixture. I also added a can of sliced black olives and some crushed red pepper, and topped off my plate with some avocado. Next time, I'll try it with sour cream and salsa.
This was very easy and yummy. I used ground turkey instead and added some salsa as well to make it more "saucier". Everybody loved it, would be a great potluck dish too. Serve with sour cream and salsa too.
Taste was good, but it was a little dry.
Delicious! My husband and I ate half the casserole tonight! Will definitely need to make a double batch if cooking for more than 4-5 people.
