Enchilada Pasta

Every once in awhile, I try a recipe on my own.  I create something and it works out.  Or I change things around and find out how to make it work.

A few weeks ago I was walking through the grocery store and found myself finding cheese-filled tortellini.  It looked appealing.  I came home and looked around the cupboard for something to combine it with, something that would make it delicious.

I came across my enchilada sauce.  I firmly believe Frontera Enchilada Sauce is the bestest.  And, they recently changed their packaging.  Instead of coming in a jar, it now comes in a bag!  This is great, unless you can’t quite find it in the grocery store!  Luckily, I’ve found it and I did a low, quick and easy version of Enchilada Pasta.

I tried eating it warm and wasn’t that impressed.  I wasn’t even going to share it with you.  But, for lunch today, I ate the leftovers (and since I don’t have a microwave) cold.  And I loved it as a pasta salad, instead of as a main dish.  It was delicious.  I have a few changes I’d like to try to change things up in the future: adding chicken, trying to mix the enchilada sauce with sour cream to make it creamier, perhaps adding in some taco seasoning… For now, though, you might enjoy it as well!
