Wow - nice twist on regular 'ol hard shell tacos! This is kinda like traditional Mexican meets old school Italian. Like others, I was a bit skeptical but overall it's really good. It tastes like a meatball hoagie fused with a hard shell taco. So, if you like both of those you're bound to like this. My husband is a fan of both, so he really enjoyed this. Plus, it was quick and easy to put together for a weeknight meal. I seasoned the ground beef and sausage with a little minced garlic as well as Italian seasoning. I omitted with sugar from the jarred sauce as I used "Classico's Sweet Tomato Basil Sauce". I topped the "tacos" with a combination of mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. Overall, simply delicious!

This was really good and super easy, but it would have been better on bread than in a taco shell. If I make it in the shell again, I will add some roasted red peppers and ricotta cheese to make it more taco like and less like a meatball sandwich.

For a quick and easy meal, this was a five star recipe. I loved the crunchy taco shell mixed with the Italian flavors. I wasn't sure how this was going to be, but I was pleasantly surprised.
