Add in broth of choice and pasta. I wanted to add in elbows but only had shells. Oh well, still good.

Lower heat and let that cook till the sauce thickens to your preference.

Stir in parsley, but I really used cilantro because I don’t like parsley. I put cilantro in everything, you probably noticed.

Drop some sour cream, cheese and scallions. I served this with fresh baked bread from the bakery. So good.

Ok so that’s my take on chili pasta. I hope you enjoy this for this really cold 70 degree weather in December we’re  having hah!
