Easy Cheesy Chilli Pasta Bake - Leftover Recipe

When I make chilli con carne I always make too much, but not to fuss it doesn't get wasted. Just pop any you have leftover into a nice clean tub and freeze. When you want a quick dinner all you have to do it defrost and reheat in the microwave but be sure to check that it is piping hot.

Cheesy Chilli Pasta Bake

Or you can do as I did, preheat your oven to 200C/400F or Gas 6

Cook some pasta in salted water as packet instructions - I used spiral shaped pasta but of course you can use whatever shape you fancy.

Drain the pasta and stir through your chilli. Put the lot into an ovenproof dish, top with a mixture Mozzarella and Cheddar and sprinkle over some paprika, cover with a lid or foil till it's heated through. Remove the cover in the last 10 minutes or so till the cheese is golden and bubbling.

Serve with a side salad and enjoy.
