    Wow! The easiest and most delicious chili recipe ever!!! I made the following additions: seasoned the meat with various spices, added a can of diced tomatoes(seasoned with basil, garlic and oregano), added a can of corn and peppers, used half and onion, cooked the pasta separately and used a 23.5 oz jar of Prego Chunky Garden Tomato, Onion and Garlic. It was so good! I am definately going to keep this as a winter staple!

    Very good and quick to make. We added some hot sausage to add a little tang. Great meal.
