  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.

  • Drain rotini and return to the pot; place over low heat. Stir milk and butter with the rotini; cook until the butter melts completely, 2 to 3 minutes; add turkey mixture and stir. Sprinkle cheese over the rotini-and-turkey mixture; cook and stir until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes.

We enjoyed this recipe--my husband ate seconds and didn't complain. I followed the recipe as best I could, but omitted the soy sauce as we didn't have any. I also used elbow macaroni instead of rotini because that's what I had, but I really don't think that changes anything. Overall, I think this is a great meal. The only change I would make is to stir the taco seasoning in the milk before it's added to the pasta. Read More

I felt like is was maybe a good base but it needs more flavor. I'm not even sure what seasonings though. Read More

Very good... followed as written but halved since it was only two of us. Did add some green pepper as suggested by one of the reviewers; also added a can of dice tomatoes. I also omitted the soy sauce. Drained cooked pasta and then added half cup skim milk about 3 oz. velvetta and some cheddar cheese. My husband said he really enjoyed this. Read More

The mix is really salty. It was easy to make. I will make it again but will add my own seasonings and not a packaged taco seasoning. I added 1/2 cup cream cheese to give it some more creamy flavor. I also added jalapeños and rooster sauce to the top of the bowls. was a nice touch if you like a little more spicy flavor. Read More

Way to salty! I think the soy sauce with the taco seasoning was a little to much. Read More
