To serve pasta with Chilli?

Got the chilli on and just discovered that I have no rice left.

Would it be that bad to just serve it with pasta (fusilli if that makes a difference)?

Chilli & pasta is like a mexican version of spag bolognese! No big deal enjoy!

Well, chilli is just bolognese with a few extras. I do this all the time.

I wouldn't - it doesn't seem 'right'. I like the texture of rice with chilli. I eat Arabiatta, so agree I am probably being a bit odd - I thin k it is because the Arabiatta sauce is thinner so the texture works better. I would prefer jackets or wedges.

It will be yummy, nothing to worry about

I wouldn't. I'd have the chilli with crusty bread, or garlic pitta bread, or tortillas, or even just salad.
