"I substituted the vegetarian chili with Stagg Chili (2 cans) and omitted the jar of chunky salsa. I also used frozen corn instead of canned. Adding extra cheese made this dish a real hit with my teenage son and his friends! In a pinch, when short on time, I use KD (Kraft Dinner) instead of the spiral pasta."

"My husband is a meat and potatoes man and is very picky about anything else. I was challenged to make him more meatless meals. He loved this. He's already talking about how I should make it again. I think next time I will stir some of the cheese in besides just putting it on top. But we will definitely be making this again and again."

"I added more cheese to this and mixed it in along with putting it on top. A good meatless recipe - everyone enjoyed it a lot."

"It was a bit spicy so I just added sour cream on top to tone it down a bit. My family enjoyed it!"
