This meat is my absolute favorite thing to make lately! I cannot get enough of it so I decided to change it up a bit and turn it into a creamy pasta!! The sweet and spicy flavors of this meat combine together perfectly with the creamy pasta for one amazing dish. You seriously need to try this out!! You will not believe how amazing these flavors are.
Add more or less sriracha or Splenda to make it sweeter or spicier!
