This was a throw together meal when I didn’t have enough in the house to make spaghetti or tacos but together they made this, now we plan to make it regularly.

We loved this! I cut this in half for two of us tonight, and I did make a few changes. My hubby will only happily eat capellini, so I used that rather than the spaghetti. I didn't want to use a package mix for the veggies, so I added raw celery, capsicum, corn, and onion to the mix, and it turned out perfect! I didn't add the olives or the jalapenos, but I did add pepperoncinis. The taco seasoning I used was from the US Allrecipes---Taco Seasoning I. This is something I'd make in a heartbeat again! We loved it! I would add anything from artichoke hearts to avocado next time. This recipe was an excellent idea! I have a few leftovers and will make them the center of an omelet tomorrow! Thanks! - 18 May 2013
