How do you make Crock Pot Taco Pasta Bake?
Cook your ground beef in a skillet before putting in the slow cooker. Another option is to use your Ninja Cooking System.
You can brown the meat right in the same pot if you have one of these. I love ours.
Once the meat is back in the slow cooker, add in bell pepper, seasonings, tomato sauce, salsa, milk and broth. Make sure it is all combined.
After everything has finished cooking, you will need to add the pasta 15 minutes before serving.
It will look water but do not worry. The pasta will soak it all up and it will be perfect!
Once the pasta has the desired tenderness it is time to stir in the cheese until melted. Yum!
Serve and enjoy this wonderful meal!

Tips for making Taco Pasta Bake:
I use a small food chopper or processor to quickly and easily chop the onions. 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.
Any little bit of time we can save is a huge help on busy days. It is so nice to be able to just grab from the freezer and not have to worry about chopping or cutting things up.
