    This tastes just like a taco in a bowl! Be sure to heat it up so that all the cheese melts. ;)

      This was a really good lunch pasta salad. I used whole wheat pasta (Barilla) and low fat cheese and fat free sourcream and it still had a great taste to it! I ate this cold and loved it. I think next time I will leave the garlic out! Thanks for posting! [Made for PRMR tag march 2010]

      I scaled this down quite a bit to serve me and my mother with great results. I usde lean ground turkey, low fat sour cream, low fat cheese, and fresh tomatos. I went a bit heavy handed on the taco seasoning to give it an extra kick. Great recipe!
