I searched and didn't see a report of this, so I'll report it here.

I had a reference in a solution for one project called Sharpavi. When I removed that nuget package, it should have completely removed NuGet from the solution and project. It mostly did, but left a remnant at the very bottom of the project file that made it not compile until we manually edited the project file in notepad and removed the block of code. It looks something like this:

<Import Project="$(SolutionDir).nuget\NuGet.targets" Condition="Exists.....
<Target Name="EnsureNuGetPackageBuildImports" BeforeTargets="PrepareForBuild">
<ErrorText>This project references NuGet package(s) that are missing on this computer. Enable NuGet Package Restore....

I found that if you load a solution that contains the files .nuget/nuget.targets then nuget in visual studio will automatically add this bit to your project files.
Maybe that helps.
