I am in love with this recipe – I have already made it twice this week. I want to try this recipe again with a mac and cheese twist. Mac and Cheese Chili Pasta recipe.

What is your favorite type of pasta recipe?

I personally love a good old fashion mac and cheese. But this Chili Pasta recipe is getting a lot higher in my book – it is FULL of protein so it really fills you up which is what I love. There is cumin in this dish too which really ups the flavor profile

If you do not want to use ground beef in this recipe do not worry just use ground chicken or turkey instead


I made this dish with gluten free pasta so this dish is gluten free – you should have a lot of this dish ingredients in your kitchen already

This recipe makes enough for about 6 – so there is most likely leftovers


This recipe is so easy to make too – plus there were left overs which was perfect for lunch the next day – you do not need to use sour cream – personally I could live off of just sour cream but that is just me
