Profile Taco Pasta

Profile Pasta Challenge - 3rd Place: Profile Taco Pasta

We challenged our stores to create the ultimate Profile-approved cold pasta recipe. Each location submitted their top recipe to go head-to-head in the final taste test at Profile HQ. After much deliberation, the top three recipes were picked and a champion has been crowned. Stay tuned over the next three days as we release the top three recipes in our Profile Pasta Challenge!

Third Place: Profile Taco Pasta
Created by Profile by Sanford – Brookings

Profile – Brookings found a way to fuse together Italian and Mexican cuisine so you can enjoy that taco crunch without all the calories. Combining fresh lettuce and cherry tomatoes with a handful of Profile foods, they were able to recreate the delectable taste of taco salad in a way that’s definitely ‘Profile-approved’. Sprinkle some freshly shredded cheese on the top and you have a zesty cold salad that’s sure to be a party pleaser!
