Chill a beer for this nice and spicy dish! The elbows should be cooked al dente in well salted water to prevent broken mushy noodles. Do salt the water liberally. (2 teaspoons is not a lot once mixed with the rest of the ingredients) Seasons the pasta and avoids father salting in the recipe. This can be eaten as a side or a main balanced meal. I opted for yogurt and smart balance for better health. But you can use sour cream and mayo.
