Chili Cheese Pasta

Ever feet like there's no time to cook? Either you're in a hurry or you're extremely tired or perhaps you just plain old don't feel like it... well this recipe is perfect for one of those moments. It's a few ingredients tossed in together and the result is quite tasty (unless of course, if you're not a huge chili cheese kind of person, then perhaps a simple jar of tomato pasta sauce and sprinkles of parmesan cheese can be better to your liking).

Whatever the case may be, we can all appreciate a quick go to meal from time to time. 

Chili Cheese Pasta
Inspired by a a tasty sampler at Trader Joe's

  • 1 can of chili (I used Dennison's Turkey Chili)
  • 1 cup of cheddar cheese
  • approx 7 oz of pasta
  • 2 tbsp of goat cheese (optional, adds more creamy texture and only a hint of goat cheese flavor)
  1. Cook pasta according to instructions via package
  2. Heat can of chili in a sauce pan until hot and bubbly, add in cheese(s) and mix until melted and well incorporated.
  3. Stir in pasta and enjoy.
** another (longer/probably healthier) option is of course make your own chili, however when in a crunch for time, this will get the job done quick and easy.
