Vegetarian Fajita Pasta

It’s been a while since I’ve features a pasta recipe. Pasta is always my immediate go-to whenever I’m looking for a cheap inexpensive meal. But sometimes regular old spaghetti or alfredo can get old.

This Vegetarian Fajita Pasta is my take on combining fajitas with pasta. Swap the tortillas for penne pasta and you have yourself the best Mexican dish for dinner.

This recipe doesn’t take a long time to prepare, and it doesn’t take a lot to make either. What really brings this recipe together are the spices. I opted to make my own fajita seasoning (you can get store bought too). In the past, I have always used store bought fajita/taco seasoning mix. But lately, I’ve been wanting to minimize how much added salts from processed foods I’ve been using for my recipes.
