This was a great way to use up some home-made chili so I used my own recipe and then topped the ziti with it. I always add cinnamon to my chili so I didn't find it unusual that this recipe called for it. It was interesting that the same children that would not eat the chili in the bowl the night before ate lots of it when it had noodles underneath. Read More

Yuck!! Too much of a cinnamon taste. Imagine chili with cinnamon in it. Will not make again. Read More

I thought this was awesome! I did not think the cinnamon overpowered it at all. I do like cinnamon though.. the flavor was kind of sweet. Yum! I will make again and again! Family loved too. Read More

This is a great recipe to stretch your chili if you are serving it to a lot of people. I used a can of chili diced tomatoes and a can of chili beans in place of the tomato sauce and kindey beans. I didn't use the seasonings in this recipe I used a chili seasoning from this site. Will use this recipe again! Read More
