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.

I made the recipe exactly as written. My husband and I didn't care for this.

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!

I have a lot of friends who are vegetarian and I made this recipe for some of them one night and it was a huge hit! They all wanted the recipe and were impressed it was so simple. My very non-vegetarian husband also thought it was great. I used frozen corn kernels instead of canned and it was fantastic!
