Mexican Mac N Cheese

I wanted to make something fun tonight to both impress my husband and also knock one more thing off my pinterest recipe board that I needed to make. I managed to twist ingredients to suit our likes and I can't begin to tell you how yummy this was. We made one with sausage and one with vegetarian veggie crumbles. Can you tell which is which? If so comment below :)

  • 1 box rigatoni
  • 1 package pork sausage or veggie crumbles
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 jar pineapple salsa
  • 4 cups mexican shredded cheese
  • green chiles
  • chopped cilantro
  • 1 ugly tomato
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 short velveeta stick

  1. preheat oven to 350
  2. boil the pasta and set aside
  3. saute onion, garlic, and sausage/crumbles until onions are soft and clear and meat is done
  4. once meat combo is done (drain grease if pork) and then add salsa and mix well
  5. layer glass baking dish with pasta, meat, cheese
  6. melt velveeta in chunks with a couple tablespoons of butter (optional)
  7. pour velveeta on top of final baking dish product (optional)
  8. scatter green chiles on top (optional)
  9. bake 20 minutes (or until it is bubbling)
  10. place sliced tomatos, cilantro, and any other toppings you would like (olives/?) on top
  11. serve and enjoy!
