    Came out quite tasty, more zest to it than a store bought Hamburger Helper. Simple to make as well.

    Family loved it! Added more cheese and i followed someone's review that they used sour cream as a topping. Taste even better with the sour cream.

    Didn't see the part about needing shell pasta, ended up using spirals. Turned out great!

    It didn’t taste nothing like tacos. I couldn’t taste any of the seasoning. All it tasted like was goulash. I mean it took me back to my childhood but I have eaten so much of it in the past. I just don’t like the taste of goulash any more. But this is a easy and quick recipe to make and for others it will probably work better for. But not for me.

    This was good. Easy. Salsa flavor was a little overwhelming so next time will use less or may try a different salsa

    It was just okay. That said, it was easy to make and should please most families with kids. I would like it spicier and perhaps more involved. I will make it again so I can experiment with it.

    Easy and tasty pasta recipe. I added diced cooked onions to the ground beef mixture and used Taco sauce because I couldn’t find salsa at the grocery I went to. Before serving, I sprinkled fresh parsley to add a little green color and was it was delicious. Maybe next time i’ll sprinkle the pasta with fresh coriander instead of parsley.

    I liked this recipe when I first made it. I made it again and I don't like it. It may be because I had made a different recipe that was similar to this one but the other one had canned diced tomatoes. It was gross and that's all I can taste with this one. It's not a bad recipe. Just my taste buds hating me lol.
