      we loved it, but i did make a few adjustments. first, i used 1 bag of morningstar farms crumble as we are a vegetarian household. also, i mixed the first three ounces of cheese into the pasta mixture and then topped it with the remaining cheese and tomato -- it gave it a much cheesier taste throughout.

      This was excellent. We were out of salsa, so instead of the roma tomatoes, I used one can of rotel and one can of diced tomatoes and added some fajita seasoning. Definately adding this to the rotation.

      I used Mexican blend cheese and followed the recipe otherwise. We absolutely loved every bite! We will have again too! Thanks!
