Taco Spaghetti

Ok, I know, the name sounds childish, but I enjoyed this dish just as much as my son.  It's fun to chop the toppings together and you can serve this buffet style so everyone can pick their favorites.

Cooked rice or quinoa pasta
Spaghetti sauce

Shredded cheese (mild cheddar, Monterey Jack or your favorite)
Finely chopped onion or green onion
Sliced black olives
Avocado slices or chunks
Sour cream or plain yogurt

Cook pasta according to package directions and toss with spaghetti sauce to coat the noodles well, don't drench them.  Warm sour cream or plain yogurt in a small saucepan over the lowest heat, just until it is warmed.  Serve spaghetti and sauce and allow guests to choose their own toppings.  Serve with a green leafy salad.
