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)?

I would go to the shop for rice tbh.

I almost served pasta sauce with rice yesterday. I stopped myself grin

I'd make potato wedges instead.

Nothing wrong with it at all. YANBU

No - just serve it with pasta - it's only for the family, I'm assuming?

whats wrong with chilli and pasta?

insomniarules Fri 28-Jun-13 15:49:31

Erm. I did exactly that last night for thd sand reasons. It was fine.

Don't suppose you have any potatoes? I've done a 'chilli cottage pie' type thing before, with cheesy mash for the topping

I often have pasta and chilli ad I don't eat rice. It's only like bolognese, innit? wink

OhYouBadBadKitten Fri 28-Jun-13 15:50:32

It is fine, like spicy bolognaise.

Ilovesunflowers Fri 28-Jun-13 15:50:41

I always eat chilli with pasta. It's just spicy spag bol really!

There's nothing inherently odd about the flavour combinations, go ahead.

I might do jackets instead though. Jacket spuds and chilli is one of my favourites.

RobotBananas Fri 28-Jun-13 15:51:59

Its nice. Add cheese.

StuntGirl Fri 28-Jun-13 15:52:15

<shrug> We have it with any carb we happen to have in, pasta, rice, potatoes, potato wedges. Go wild! grin

I've made chilli lasagne before now, it was delicious. Sounds reasonable to me.

MortifiedAdams Fri 28-Jun-13 15:55:31

Ah grand. Due to do a big shop so have barely anything in and just assumed thered be rice as "we always have rice in" grin

MortifiedAdams Fri 28-Jun-13 15:56:02

That chilli cottage pie sounds lovely

aldiwhore Fri 28-Jun-13 15:56:58

If anyone says you shouldn't, you should!

I'm off pasta at present, but I'd prefer it to rice and yahboo to anyone who says it's not 'proper'.

diddl Fri 28-Jun-13 16:03:57

Jacket potato for me!

Funny how we get about certain things "going together" isn't it?

My daughter doesn't like chilli or rice much so the compromise is that she'll eat it with pasta.

Nearly gagged the first time she suggested it-& I wasn't even going to be eating it!blushgrin

anyway chilli and pasta is ds2 FAVOURITE dinner, he hates rice.

Bejeena Fri 28-Jun-13 16:06:17

We always used to have chilli con carne with pasta when I was growing up, I didn't know it any other way. Always used to have pasta twists though, don't know why!

Mintyy Fri 28-Jun-13 16:07:39

I would go to the shop for rice but that is purely because I love rice and am a bit meh about pasta.

KatieScarlett2833 Fri 28-Jun-13 16:08:17

It's the only way i'll eat chilli.
I loathe white rice y'see smile
