Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not a big chili fan, but I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with chili since it was the first... I'm not a big chili fan, but I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with chili since it was the first cool day of fall and he had been craving it. We both LOVED this recipe. I added 1 can of chili beans, some shredded cheddar, about 2 Tb of chili powder, 1 1/2 Tb of minced garlic, and dried minced onion instead of a fresh onion. It turned out extremely well. I'm glad I put the extra can of beans in, otherwise, it would not have been as hearty. Next time, I will also add pinto beans. I also made cornbread, which went extremely well with the chili. This is a definite must-try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! 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!

I hosted a chili dinner at my home and this was the first time I had made chili...it was a hit! It is somewhat a cross between chili and goulash. Everyone asked where I came up with the ideas to add noodles to chili. The parmesan on top just completes it. The leftovers are great, also! I doubled the recipe and it was the perfect size for 7 people. I can't wait to make this recipe again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved this chili although it was more like chili mac. I loved this chili although it was more like chili mac. I made it the day before so when I warmed it up it was very thick but still very good. I added a extra tbsp of chili powder and 1/4 tea salt. I used undrained mild chili beans and small salad shells for the pasta [ they cook a little faster ] I will make this again but will serve it right away next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have made this several times and it's delicious every time! Have made this several times and it's delicious every time! After the first, you don't even need the recipe anymore. We spice it up sometimes with chopped green pepper and a little sugar, which is very good, other times cook just as directed, and other times leave out the onion. It has a different flavor with each way, but each is great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My husband and I both love this recipe. My husband and I both love this recipe. I do recommend adding in more chili powder if you want an actual chili taste to it. We are going to add in more sauce next time because it cooked down a lot and ended up not being as soup-like as the photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this chili! I loved this chili! It was very easy to make and it didn't tast as "Italian" as I thought it would. I also really like having the pasta in it as well. I used small whole wheat shells which was very good and added more nutrition as well. YUM!!!
