Mexican Pasta Recipe

Amazing how much the kids loved this one... it's a fun way to serve some great healthy alternatives! I kind of put an Italian flair to everything even chili

1 recipe of  Mexican Italian Chili (see instructions below)
2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
grating cheese
red pepper flakes (optional)
Boil one pound of sea shell  pasta till al dente, drain. Scoop plain pasta onto plate, top with Italian Style Mexican Chili,  sprinkle with cheeses and red pepper. Serve with crusty garlic bread, corn bread or bread sticks.
