Enchilada Pasta Bake Haiku: "Wow, this makes a ton! (I used spirals, and not shells.) Nice, make-ahead meal." I prepped this for a crowd of kids chowing dinner b4 trick-or-treating, since it was a basic, not too spicy, noodle dish. It was gobbled down (well, they left plenty of room for Halloween candy), and w/ plenty of leftovers for the adults, since this made ALOT. My personal taste resulted in me adding hot sauce, since it was on the mild side, but for ease of preparation, and for items typically on hand, it was a dinner success.


Very delish! It's simple and quick to make. I used hot & spicey taco mix. I would suggest that if you like it hotter.


I thought that this bake was pretty good, and a quick weeknight meal. My boyfriend hates buying the mixed spice packs because they are a rip-off, so we concocted our own tace seasoning, and it turned out great. Two cups of cheese seemed like a lot to put on the top of this bake, so we only did about a half cup, but if we were to make it again would use a whole cup because it does bake down into the casserole. Very delicious!
