Perfect way to add Mexican flavor to pasta

Wow! What a delicious find! I added some pan sheared spicy shrimp (chili powder, red pepper flakes, and cumin) as a topper and it was a filling meal. The cheese and lime were nice complimentary flavors. I'm excited to try it with other vegetables!

Easy, one pot meal, can add more of anything

This turned out surprisingly well. I add squash to it to have more vegetables. It was really pretty easy but you need a large pan to cook it all in. The noodles have a really nice flavor from cooking them in the oil before hand. The lime, cotija cheese and scallions add a PERFECT touch to the meal. I am really pleasantly surprise by this dish. I definitely recommend it!!

Easy, you can add whatever vegetables you want, cooks in one pan, dinner in a bowl!
Love it

My partner and I love this. I used a 14.5 oz can of fire roasted tomatoes instead of 2 fresh tomatoes and Parmesan cheese instead of Asiago. My partner thought I ought to try adding cilantro next time. It's really nice to have a different way to use pasta, and we love the sauteed flavor.

Simple, 1 pot meal
yummy for lunch

I substituted asperagus for green beans and left out the cheese. This was really great on the first night, but also heated really well for lunch for a few days!

reheated great
Easy & delicious!

I made this for the first time and was very happy with the results. I didn't have whole wheat pasta, so used regular. I also didn't have enough green beans to make 2 cups, so I added some zucchini and yellow squash (from my garden). It was delicious! I didn't have the mexican cheese on hand, so I used Romano. The scallions and lime juice added at the end really brought the dish together and made it special.
