Four Cheese Taco Pasta



This morning I had originally planned on making one of our favorite pasta dishes until I realized it was Cinco De Mayo. So, I ended up turning my Italian pasta dish into a Cinco De Mayo pasta dish by putting my own Mexican spin on it. Nothing is easier than this Four Cheese Taco Pasta and if you have kids they are sure to enjoy this cheesy pasta!
