Introduction: Enchilada Pasta

About: I'm a designer, maker, writer, and artist based in upstate NY.

Lately, I've been making this awesome dish called Enchilada Pasta. It's chock full of spiciness and cheese and it's just downright hearty. This one pot meal is perfect for busy moms who don't have time for a big, grand meal or studious college students who are tired of ramen noodles. Oh and did I mention it's vegetarian?

Step 1: Ingredients

The great thing about this meal is its ease and the very few ingredients.

You'll need a clove of garlic, half an onion, a can of enchilada sauce (15 oz.), fake hamburger meat (half a bag of MorningStar Crumbles), rotini noodles and a cup of cheese (I chose reduced fat sharp cheddar). You'll also need some vegetable/olive oil and 4 cups of water (both not pictured).

Step 2: Cooking

Saute your onion and garlic in a little bit of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until the onions are translucent. Then add your half-bag of fake hamburger meat and stir that around until it's fully heated (and no longer frozen). Now add your enchilada sauce, then water. Stir everything around so everything is well-incorporated. When the water/enchilada sauce is boiling, add the noodles and let them simmer. Push the noodles all the way down under the water so they can cook better. Once the water starts to boil rapidly, the water will turn into water vapor and you will have less liquid in your pot. That's normal.

Step 3: Add Cheese!

When a lot of the water has been boiled out and the noodles are cooked, turn the burner off and add a cup of cheese to everything. Stir it up!

Step 4: Recipe Complete!

I like to serve mine with a little cheese on top. See how cheese makes everything better? Of course, that's my own opinion and you don't have to add cheese if you don't want to. :)

    Definitely. I bet it'd be good with chicken or beef.
