This meal is not only delicious and simple but very easy on the budget. The pasta really stretches the meat and makes the meal go a long ways.
You could even add more pasta to stretch this meal even further. If you have unexpected dinner guests or your kids have friend’s over, try that trick!

Tips for making Taco pasta shells:
I use a small food chopper or processor to quickly and easily chop the onion and green pepper. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver.
I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take diced onion or bell peppers out of the freezer for recipes.
We also make our own homemade taco seasoning. I like to keep a big batch of it and it’s ready when I need it.
