This is an easy recipe similar to chili-mac but made with spaghetti. My son loved it and thought it was a neat concept. He even wanted it for breakfast the next day!

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, onion, and garlic in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Stir spaghetti into the beef mixture; add kidney beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, mushrooms, water, chili seasoning mix, and Parmesan cheese. Place a cover on the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until hot, about 10 minutes. Top with Cheddar cheese.

Cook's Note:

For a Tex-Mex taco spaghetti variation, substitute black beans for the kidney beans, diced tomatoes with green chilies for the regular diced tomatoes, taco seasoning for the chili seasoning, and Colby-Jack for the sharp Cheddar.

Chili-ghetti Haiku: "Pretty tasty meal! But I made mine casserole, and put in oven." I prepared this ahead of time and put it in the oven at 350 covered for 20 min., uncovered for 10 to get the cheese nice and brown. I like the ease of having a casserole-type noodle dish like this made earlier in the day (if not the day b4), making dinnertime alot easier on me - oven on, Ding, sit down to eat. My parents like to eat chili scooped atop spaghetti noodles and this reminded me of that, only everything was all incorporated. Tasty ~ we'd eat it again! Read More
