Mexi-Itali Casserole

Mexi-Itali Casserole created by Mama Cee Jay

I started with Zaar Recipe #217644, Perfectly Seasoned Taco Meat, then went on to create my own Mexican flavored baked pasta. Fresh thinly sliced green bell peppers and jalapenos make all the difference!

    This was OK for us. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the jalapeno as I am not a fan. I also used ground beef and used a packet of taco seasoning instead of the Perfectly Seasoned Taco Meat. We did add some salt and pepper to the mixture but it just seemed to be missing something for us.
