Mexican Pasta

For an easy Mexican dinner any night of the week, try this Mexican Pasta Skillet recipe. To make this Mexican pasta recipe even healthier, add your family’s favorite frozen vegetables.



1. In a 12-inch skillet, cook the meat over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally until thoroughly cooked; drain.

2. Stir in salsa, tomato sauce and water. Heat to a boil. Stir in macaroni and corn.

3. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until macaroni is tender. Sprinkle with cheese.

4. Cover and let stand 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.


This is one of our family favorites. We also like to add tortilla chips before the cheese to give it some crunch. My kids are always asking for seconds.

I love this recipe--so quick and easy, a little bit of kick (we use medium salsa), and yummy, yummy cheese!! We add black beans to up the protein factor, and dice up some onion and bell pepper to increase the veggies.

The recipe is simple and kids and husbands will love it. Made it on a whim after checking the Save-a-lot web-site for the current week's ad. Surprised at how good it is and cost is under $8.00 for six servings. Added some sour cream and tortilla chips as noted by an earlier review. Kidswant it again "next week". Love Save-a Lot's prices! Publix is getting a little competition in Stuart, FL!


I make a dish somewhat like this but I add a package of taco seasoning mix to it & when I have them, I add: kidney beans ( not drained) or black beans (drained & rinsed well).. Then you have everything in there.. **I also make my kids what we call Pizza Quesadilla's... I just add Pepperoni (coarsely Chopped), cheese (for spicy/ or to add some kick you can use montery Jack Cheese w/ Jalapeno Peppers, & we add mushrooms (from the can) & I use spaghetti sauce instead of salsa... You can add anything to these that you would eat/like on your pizza...Enjoy!

Easy recipe, however the instructions are very confusing. First line says to brown the BEEF??? Isn't this a TURKEY, with NO BEEF, dish? duh

Great way to make a meal for less money! Easy to fix and it tastes good too. I use ground beef.

I love Mexican meals and have been taught by someone who cooks authentic meals. I love one dish meals. I think the ones I've chosen are ideal.

A family favorite that requires just the usual pantry staples and ground turkey or beef. We used turkey and everyone enjoyed it . Great crowd pleaser!

Mexican Pasta I would of never amagine the family would love this recipe. It was such a fiesta hit the family requested that we have it at least once a week. It was quick and the kids loved it. Thanks Save a Lot for all the saving to complete this meal


easy to make...use a hotter salsa and/or add some red pepper flakes to give it more "kick"
