Fajita One Pot Pasta - With Farrah's
Ok, so it’s June and it has been a bit cold, wet and miserable. Which to me means warm comfort type meals are needed. Nothing screams warmth more than Mexican, combine this with pasta my ultimate comfort food and I think I have come up with the perfect mid winter Mexican meal! Yes pasta and warm Mexican flavours have combined perfectly in the Farrah’s Fajita One Pot Pasta. I kid you not the combo of Mexican and pasta has been an absolute hit at our house.
One pot pasta meals are all the rage these days, and what’s not to like about the concept. Literally, the whole meal cooks in one pot, you don’t have to cook the pasta separately. Don’t worry I was a little skeptical too, wouldn’t the pasta be gluggy? wouldn’t it all just stick together? Well after trying it a number of times I can say, Nope, the pasta cooks really well, it is an awesome method for getting a family meal together quickly!
When I was asked by Farrah’s to create a midwinter Mexican recipe with their new Fajita spice mix, I jumped at the chance to officially get on the one-pot-pasta bandwagon and get a recipe for a one-pot-pasta meal onto my site.
The Farrah’s spice mixes are packed full of flavour with no artificial colours or flavours, just oodles and oodles of taste! My kiddos loved the Fajita spice mix as it is very mild, by mild I mean it is not spicy, that does not mean it is not full of delicious spiced flavours, it is just not chili hot. Farrah's spice mixes are easy to track down. They should be available in the Mexican aisle of your local supermarket.
So now let’s get on with the show, my fajita one pot pasta, a real rough and ready throw it together meal that totally works and will be a crowd pleaser. A big thanks to Farrah's for making this post possible, I received payment to both create the recipe and post it on my site and social media.
