Healthy taco pasta. A quick and simple blender sauce for an easy weeknight dinner!


  • 8 oz box of pasta (gluten free if needed)
  • 15 oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 single serve siggi’s plain 0% or 2% milk fat yogurt (5.3 oz)
  • 3 tbsp warm water
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1.2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • dash of cayenne
  • Optional: 1 lb precooked ground beef or turkey
  • Optional for garnish: green onion or chives, sliced jalapeño, cilantro


  1. Cook pasta according to directions on box. If you are using ground beef or turkey, brown the meat while waiting for water to boil and pasta is cooking (season with just salt and pepper; ground turkey will need some oil in the pan). Cook until no longer pink.
  2. Next, make the pasta sauce by blending tomato sauce, yogurt, water, and all of the seasonings in a blender. Taste and adjust spice and salt to personal preference.
  3. Strain pasta, then stir in meat. Pour in pasta sauce and stir until everything is well combined. Option to garnish with jalapeño and green onion or chives.
