Crazy Creamy Mexican Pasta

Crazy Creamy Mexican Pasta was created on a complete whim whilst looking for left over items in my refrigerator.  I had NO idea it was going to be as incredibly delicious as it turned out to be.  This may be my best invention yet.  So good in fact, that it may solve all of the world’s problems in just one measly bite.  I’m talkin’ world hunger, war, elephant poaching, your boyfriend/girlfriend’s nagging ways, crappy drivers, and yes, even mother-in-law madness.  Don’t believe me?  Well, you’ll certainly have to chow down on this Crazy Creamy Mexican Pasta for proof.  

I am currently on my Spring break this week.  Amen, because my students were beginning to drive me crazy, and I was itchin’ for some fun playtime with my favorite wee one, G-man.  I wanted to use the left overs in my fridge (waste not, people!) but wasn’t really sure what to create.  I noticed I had some left over mole sauce and POW!  It hit me.  Thus the birth of Crazy Creamy Mexican Pasta.  So go get cookin’ and get down with this dope chow!  You’ll be drooling cheese for a week.
