Bored of regular chilli? Then turn it into a pasta bake, with this delicious Mexican Pasta Bake - yum!!
You love chilli right? and you love a pasta bake? Well this Mexican Pasta Bake is just for you.
Rich tomatoey beef chilli with kidney beans (or black beans if you prefer), mixed with pasta and topped with cheese and then baked in the oven till it is all melted - delicious!!
Great served with a mixed salad or some vegetables of your choice. Hey if you are really hungry you could even make some Perfect Chips
This would also be delicious with some sour cream on top. Have I ever mentioned I LOVE sour cream. Especially with Mexican food.
If you want a vegetarian version of this, you can swap out the ground beef for lentils or a meat substitute, or instead use my Sweet Potato, Vegetable and Lentil Chilli
This dish is perfect for freezing and suitable for those who are gluten free if you use a gluten free pasta.
When we have this as a family meal, I serve in the middle of the table with some chopped tomatoes and low fat sour cream. But you can save the calories by using a fat free greek yoghurt seasoned with some salt and a little fresh lime juice. It would also be great with some avocado or guacamole for an additional few calories too.
So many great ways to serve this Mexican Pasta Bake. How will you enjoy yours?
