Super fast and easy Mexican one pan pasta – it takes less than 25 minutes to have a flavourful, one pan pasta dish on the table that everyone will love!
Two of my favourite things to make/eat for supper are Mexican food and pasta. Easy to make, so many options, and the whole family loves them both. So when I can combine the two into this amazing Mexican one pan pasta? That makes for a whole lot of happy people around here.
This Mexican one pan pasta was so good. So good in fact, that all my kids even ate it. And liked it. And it had salsa in it which we all know is way too spicy for children who like all the things as plain as can be. I think that maybe I’ve placed unknown food in front of them so many times now that I’m wearing them down. They don’t even bother to complain anymore, or say they don’t like it before trying it. They just eat it.
I think that’s win for the parents. Nice when that happens.
Also, my daughter decided she likes black beans after eating this Mexican one pan pasta. That definitely indicates a winner in the meal department. I had stopped even trying to get them to try beans, and just started telling them go ahead and pick them out. Whatever.
But she ate them. And liked them! This is exciting stuff!
All that to say that your family will like this pasta. It’s fantastic. Because anytime you can combine Mexican flavours with a fast and easy one pan pasta that is on the table in under 25 minutes, it’s a great meal.
For this Mexican one pan pasta I used a new product line from Barilla called Pronto pasta. This pasta is great for super fast meals as it removes the steps of boiling the water and draining the pasta. Perfectly cooked pasta in 10 minutes.
The only reason this Mexican version takes a little longer is because you need to chop an onion, grate some cheese, and brown some ground turkey first. Still pretty quick, and all done in one pan so the clean up is fast too.
Definitely a winner. We will be making this one a lot I think!
