Taco Spaghetti and Other Things.

First things first on this lovely Wednesday.

Have you wandered over to to take advantage of their 2 day 40% off beauty sale yet?  You may or may not regret it because there seems to be good availability of most things which often isn't the case in store.

I have a number of NYX lip glosses coming my way.  It's too easy to buy them in bulk both because of the price and the fact that they come in sets of three.  Oh well, at least I'll never knowingly run out of gloss in the office.  

There's been more shopping of my sample stash with the discovery of this sample tube of Too Faced's Shadow Insurance.  It is a bit more liquid than the Urban Decay version and takes a little longer to dry but it's still early days.

You know how I've been finding alternate, non Italian uses for spaghetti recently?  Well, I've managed to find a new recipe that manages to meld a taste of Italy with a bit of Mexican.  Taco Spaghetti.  It's a thing.  It's easy.  It's delicious and here's the video...

One pot pasta recipes are a bit of a life saver at my place.

Breaking the dry spaghetti in half as per the video does make it easier to cook.

I added some corn, carrot and celery as I browned the mince and used a bit of chicken stock (ran out of beef stock cubes) instead of plain water.

You have to add those fresh Roma tomatoes and coriander at the end.  They add a freshness to the pasta that adds some zing to the dish.  Cheese wise, I went with the multicultural vibe and used a combination of grated mozarella and Australian tasty cheddar.

Do you cook pasta in a non traditional way?

Find anything good at Priceline?


  1. Oh yum that looks delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe and your results, I'm going to have to give this a go, a nice twist on the standard spaghetti!

  2. Ah we get old El paso here. I'll give it a go. Looks really tasty. Petra in the office has lip gloss on her desk amongst her pens.
