ingredients

How to make Cajun Chili Mac:

Heat olive oil in a large pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion; cook until onions are soft, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Stir in vegetable broth, diced tomatoes, beans, and Bayou Black seasoning; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a simmer and stir in pasta. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked through; about 13 to 15 minutes.

It will seem like there is an awful lot of liquid in the pot and you may think that it looks more like a soup, but just let it simmer; you’ll see it thicken up as the pasta cooks.

Turn off the heat; top with cheese and cover until melted, about 2 minutes.

Serve immediately.
