Emily Bite's Cheesy Taco Pasta

If you haven't noticed that my my latest obsession is learning to cook healthy, affordable, yummy meals, well, this post will confirm it. This weekend, I was scouring the net to find a healthy mac & cheese recipe and I stumbled onto Emily Bite's blog and fell in love. I honestly feel super prepared to lead a much healthier lifestyle with SkinnyTaste and Emily Bites now.

For only 376 calories you not only get 29 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber, but you get a mouthful of cheesy pasta... and you feel like you just went to Taco Bell at the same time.

I followed Emily's directions exactly to a T to ensure that my dish came out just as delicious. The only change I was forced to make was the cheese because the grocery store did not have both variations of cheddar so I substituted a blend of shredded American and cheddar cheese. I am a huge fan of American cheese, so this was perfect for me.

I am slowly cooking my way through a whole bunch of skinny friendly recipes, and I will continue to share them with you! I always feel that the dish looks SO different on the websites of these foodies since their cameras are fabulous. So, you when see my pictures, please rest assure I most likely used  my cell phone and PicMonkey to crop and watermark them. That's it. I also will not be re-posting the recipes since my goal is to really follow them to the best of my ability, so please feel free to head over there to check out ingredients and directions. BUT I am definitely here if you have any questions about flavor, my personal substitution, prep, ect.
