Lets Get Cooking

Recipes from ReVo

A new idea was sent in and I have to admit I absolutely LOVE this one! Care sent a recipe which I will be sharing below [that looks delish btw!] and in doing so has sparked an entirely new section for Evolution Theory!

Everyone has a favorite recipe [or ten] and this is the place to share them. From easy weeknight meals to complex weekend cooking – sweet to savory and baked to broiled! Save a friend from the weekly meal rut and send in what you’ve got cooking!

One Skillet Taco Beef Pasta [sent in by Care]

1 pound ground beef, lean is recommended.
1 pouch Taco Seasoning or 3 Tablespoons of Homemade Taco Seasoning.
4 cups water
3/4 cup salsa
8 oz Velveeta Cheese
3 1/2 cups Rotini or any other medium Pasta


  • Brown ground beef until no pink remains. Drain the fat.
  • Stir in taco seasoning.
  • Add water, salsa and pasta. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and cover.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes or until pasta is tender. Add more water if needed.
  • Once the pasta is cooked add cheese and stir until smooth and creamy.

Author’s Notes: 
If you don’t like Normal Pasta you can use Whole Wheat or something different. 
I used Whole Wheat and didn’t like the texture and flavor of the pasta.

if you need a recipe for the homemade Taco Seasoning:
1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/4 Teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon Dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground Cumin
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Black pepper

mix all together and Store in an airtight container. makes the equivalent of one pouch.
