I doubled this meal and then froze it in 2 parts: Few dinner portions without cheese.  Another few portions with cheese.

After seeing the pasta box on the counter, my oldest asked, “Are we having macaroni for dinner?”

I replied, “Yeah, but this is Taco Macaroni.”

To which he responded, “Yum. Tac-aroni!”

Clever, huh?

Not sure how to pronounce this…Listen below.

Little stinker…trying to tell you we were having spinach!
