OK, I am taking the box of pasta off the shelf at the store, a new one to me, and I see this recipe on the back...hmm...chili mac! I have a good recipe at home, but realize this one on the box has some simple and tasty aspects...MAYBE I should combine them, one awesome new recipe? OH YES......you know how to make cornbread, but the chili mac recipe comes after the pic....(btw, we had all these Cincinatti relatives visiting recently, and they do FUNKY THINGS with chili...pasta, cocoa, cinnamon, who knows? the wife goes through this impossible list of things they do...well, anyway....)
