Notes

  • Use mild, medium or spicy ground pork sausage based on your preference.
  • Ground pork sausage is also called bulk pork sausage. 
  • If the sausage is extra greasy, drain it before adding the tomatoes and other ingredients. 
  • Substitute canned, diced tomatoes for fresh tomatoes, if desired.  Do not drain the canned tomatoes, and omit the extra water in the ingredient list.
  • Hamburger could be substituted for ground pork sausage, if needed.  Taste the taco pasta skillet, and add more salt, pepper or chili powder if more flavor is needed. 
  • Any color of pepper could be used.
