Chili-ghetti in 30 Minutes


Chili-ghetti is a delicious yet ever so simple recipe. I always make this up on cool, rainy days or cold winter’s nights. It is also great when you have guests over for an informal gathering or to watch the game and run out of chilli.

It’s fast, easy, and can be made quickly in a pinch. Imagine serving this on game night and the response you will receive. Believe me, even the kids will love it too. It is great served up with our homemade dinner rolls as well. Don’t forget a salad and cold beer just to top things off.

As always, you can alter a few things in the recipe to suit your personal style. In example, you can add more onions and garlic if you are so inclined. If you are a mushroom lover, then go to town. The same applies to the mushrooms, etc. There would also be nothing wrong with using Italian spiced tomatoes or Italian seasoning. 

I must mention that it’s a great leftover and fantastic for lunch. A hint is to freeze some for a later date.

Make this up today, drop us a line, and let us know what you think.
