Taco Mac Casserole for Low Carb Eaters

Taco Mac Casserole is an American dinner time favorite. It is a hearty meal made with season ground beef, pasta, and cheese at its core. The fixings usually include onions, tomatoes, taco seasoning, green peppers, and cumin. Taco Mac is pretty easy to make in both the traditional and low carb form. In this post, the focus is low carb, so the ingredient used was Shirataki Noodles. Carb eaters love them but if someone is a diehard pasta lover, simply substitute elbow macaroni.
