Tips for Making Taco Spaghetti:
Taco Spaghetti can be made gluten-free if you prefer using gluten-free spaghetti pasta. I almost always use Barilla Gluten-Free but any from your favorite brand will work.
Next up it’s time for the sauce. This can be made with ground turkey or ground beef then add in your favorite taco seasoning. A good option is to use this homemade taco seasoning too.
The meat sauce will be made in the skillet while the pasta is boiling in a stock pot, once your sauce is done you can combine it with your drained pasta.
After that, dinner is ready to go when topped with some shredded cheese.
We like to serve this with corn and black beans. It can even be topped with black beans and corn as add-ins too.
If you like cilantro, add that in too for a great flavor boost.
How do you make gluten-free taco spaghetti?
As mentioned above, you will just want to use gluten-free pasta, and be sure to use gluten-free taco seasoning.
It’s always important to check all ingredients before using them, but this meal is an easy swap for making gluten-free.
