The Nut Thing - A Tex-Mex Pasta Recipe via Sweden

When I worked in Sweden a good friend made this one weekend.

I've tried a few times to recreate it with mixed results, but it's always tasty.

I really need to confirm the actual ingredients & method some time soon :-)

It's basically a beef mince pasta bake with cashew nuts and taco spices.

Boil pasta. Fry mince & onion. Add taco mix.with water and tomato paste.

Add herbs and garlic. Salt and pepper. Add cashew nuts and stir to simmer.

Add whatever other vegetables you fancy - eg some chopped bell peppers.

Combine pasta and sauce in oven dish. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top.

Bake covered for 30 mins with additional 10 minutes without lid to give crunch.

Enjoy with a salad - the cashews make a nice texture - the nut thing, not a nothing...
