One-Pan Vegetarian Taco Pasta

One Pan Vegetarian Taco Pasta

If you’re looking for a hearty/easy weeknight dinner for the vegetarian (possibly you!) in your life, this One-Pan Vegetarian Taco Pasta recipe is right up your alley.  The real flavor MVP comes from browning soyrizo as the base.

One Pan Vegetarian Taco Pasta

In case you’re new here, Soyrizo is chorizo made out of soy. I mostly use it in taco form but I thought I’d try something different with pasta and here we are!

It is PACKED with flavor and is the base of this dish. 

One Pan Vegetarian Taco Pasta

It’s almost like having chili and macaroni and cheese at the same time!
