Notes

  • Do not drain the liquid from the canned tomatoes, you will need it for the pasta to cook in. 
  • You can use ground beef instead of chicken, if so, you may need to drain the grease before adding the rest of the ingredients.
  • This is even better with homemade taco seasoning, for a recipe check out Foodology Geek, her's is my favorite.
