Recipe by MMers

This is a neat cross between a pasta dish and a chili dish. Kids love it. Great if you need a quick, delicious weekday meal.

Delicious quick and easy. Ok so I'm a chicken and only used 1 tsp of chili powder but it was just the right amount of 'hot' for my family. I used fresh fettucine pasta and other than the smaller amount of chili powder followed the recipe to a T. Thanks for posting.
