Growing up, taco night was something that I loved. My mom would always buy taco seasoning packets to cook ground beef. She also set up all other ingredients for us to make our own tacos. I always added the seasoned ground beef to mine.
This recipe combines ground beef with tomatoes to create a delicious and flavorful spaghetti dish.
