You can easily double or even triple the recipe to serve a crowd, and consider what one smart PPP reader tried out (I LOVE THIS idea from Karen!)
Or, if you want to tackle making a ton of food for your family, look at this smart idea that Cheri tried out:
“Taco Spaghetti in the freezer! I doubled the recipe.”

- Pour mixture into a greased 13x9-inch disposable foil pan. Let cool, and top with remaining cheese.

Here's one more happy review from PPP long time Supper Club Menu Jilly along with her cute daughter (I love when she shares her pics!) Here's what Jilly had to say:
“Taco Inspired Spaghetti. So good! But how could it not be when you combine two of our favorite foods ” ~ Jilly, PPP Supper Club
If you need an easy recipe to feed a bunch, try this one out and let us know what you think.
QUICK TIP: On the back of the freezer recipe box weekly tabs, you'll see preparation instructions to make freezer cooking day go even more smoothly. When you make the taco spaghetti, batch cook your spaghetti ahead of time and even brown the ground beef to make your life a little easier!
