This hearty entree is low in fat, but full of flavor. I love that you can cook the dried pasta right in the chili. One less pot to wash! This also reheats in the microwave perfectly. —Dawn Forsberg, Saint Joseph, Missouri

"Very good. I used pinto beans already in a chili flavored sauce from Whole Foods. Cut back 1tsp on chili powder. Good with beef too."

"We've enjoyed this many times. I actually substitute a can of black beans for the ground turkey: easier, cheaper, healthier and still delicious!"

"Flavorful, without all the fat. The only thing I changed was the chili powder, I put 1 1/2 teaspoons instead of 2. Don't leave out the cilantro, it's perfect."

"made with regular pasta and it was good, but not spicy, so take that into consideration if you like hot chili."

"With the pasta added this recipe is more like an adult version of chili mac. That said, it's not bad if you aren't expecting chili. I watch my sodium, so I made it even healthier bu using cooked (not canned) pinto beans, home made low-sodium chicken broth, no salt added tomatoes. I didn't use the sour cream because somehow I just couldn't picture that, and I didn't really want a creamy taste. I also added a can of diced green chilis. I got 8 very hearty servings out of it, and with my ingredients that brought the calorie count down to 254 calories and lowered the sodium to 195 mg. Which means I can have it for lunch!!"

"This was a hit at my house. I added some chipotle seasoning that I had in the cupboard, but that was the only modification I made to the recipe. And I'm on Weight Watchers, so this was filling without racking up the points. (only 9 PointsPlus per serving!)"
