A vegetarian pasta dish. The chili and macaroni taste like "down home" cooking. Nice flavor and textures.

Terrific! I've been looking for some hearty vegetarian dishes and this did the trick. I make Macaroni goulash a lot and my family liked this better. Didn't miss the meat at all. I did as Annie suggested and made cornbread to accompany the dish. To the chili, I added some Hungarian paprika to spice it up a bit, and about 2 TBLS. ketchup. I only had a 14.5 oz. can of tomatoes, so I added 2 chopped fresh tomatoes and about one can of water. Thanks for the great recipe.
