I have a recipe that uses "beef pasta."

This kicks butt with some super-sharp cheddar.

Even better with some ground sausage as well.

Yeah, I know, kill you with cholesterol. Hey, you only live twice, right?

we did have cheese on top. i have/do put sausage in but i used all the sausage up in my bread. i guess great minds think alike but we all run out sometimes. LOL green pepper, sausage (out of casing) and onion is good also.

Last night we were supposed to go out to dinner & a movie ("Angels With Dirty Faces" (James Cagney/Humphrey Bogart) at the Library of Congress theatre), but poor hubby got held up at work, & that plus his horrendous commute - especially during a rainy rush hour - nixed that.

So I found I had 1/3 box of Tomato Basil flavored penne pasta & 1/3 box of Barilla Plus penne pasta. Cooked both together, drained, & added them to some 1/2 & 1/2 butter/extra-virgin olive oil along with a can of Rotel Mexican Cilantro & Lime flavor tomatoes & chilis, & some cooked sliced Jalapeno Garlic chicken sausages. Served with a green salad. Tasty & quick.

I ended up firing off my quick & dirty tex-mex chicken & rice.

1 lb. chicken breast meat, cut into 1-inch pieces.
6 oz Mexican chorizo (the fresh stuff that's more like goop in a tube, as opposed to Spanish which you slice)
2 cups medium grain (I like arborio, but it's not a must) rice, cooked, rinsed, and drained.
1 medium onion, minced fine
1 green pepper, minced fine
3 cloves garlic, crushed.
1 T ground cumin
1 T smoked paprika
Few strands of saffron (or if you're a cheapskate like me, about 3 T Mexican Saffron, ground)
1 cup Oaxaca (can be subbed with Jack or extra sharp Cheddar if you prefer) shredded.

Cook down the chorizo over medium heat until it gives up a good bit of grease. Add the onion, garlic, and pepper, cook until the onions are nearly clear. Add the chicken. Once the chicken turns white on the outside (2-3 minutes), add the spices and continue the saute, stirring constantly, for another 3-4 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Add the rice and combine thoroughly. Top with the shredded cheese and serve immediately. For those who prefer a bigger kick, add 1 habanero, chopped fine, with the other veggies, or 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes with the other seasonings.

Fast (even with the rice cook time, it's under 30 minutes), easy, and tasty.
