I don't usually blog this quickly after eating a meal but this pasta was too fantastic to not share immediately. It was incredibly easy and A-MAZ-ING!!!! I loved the combination of pasta and enchiladas... two of my favorite foods. My husband requested that this go on our regular menu from now on and it should be on yours, too! Make this ASAP! :)
