DELICIOUS! I'll definitely make this again.

I substituted two tablespoons no-heat pickled jalapenos for the green chilies in the recipe, and garlic salt for the salt called for ~ I used ground pork, mini-bowtie pasta, added freshly ground pepper, and a dash of cayenne to the recipe. To melt and brown the cheese, I baked this in a 10-inch quiche dish at 375F for 20 minutes ~ I garnished with fresh cilantro.

This recipe was made as a SPECIAL THANK YOU to Chef Shapeweaver for MERPing the most recipes in the Peppercorns~Black Pepper March 2012 Recipe Tag, in the Photo Forum.

We thought this was pretty tasty, but after putting it together, I questioed whether I should have used tomato sauce instead of paste since it got very thick and was difficult to get the pasta cooked. We did eat it though, but I will probably make that change next time I make this.
