{not your ordinary mac and cheese}

I got this recipe off of the pioneer women cooks blog. I love her blog if you haven't looked at it well your missing out on something special. My family all loved it even Cole. I am not going to lie I had three helpings and I even scraped the plate when I was done. Let me know if you like it as much as we did. Happy cooking.

4 cups cooked macaroni or cavatappi
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 to 1/2 finely diced red onion
Equal amount diced red bell pepper
1 finely diced jalapeno
1 4 oz can chopped green chilies
1 cup frozen corn
2 to 3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup cream
1 generous cup grated Pepper Jack cheese
2 tablespoons butter

Boil pasta until al dente. In a large skillet, add olive oil and saute garlic and vegetables over medium heat for a couple of minutes. Add in canned chilies and stir around, then turn off heat. Drain pasta and add it to skillet. Pour on cream, add cheese, then add salt and pepper to taste and stir gently. At the end, add 2 tablespoons butter and stir again. Check seasonings and serve.
Serve with juicy steak, with grilled shrimp, chicken, or on its own.

{not your ordinary mac and cheese} No, that's your ordinary mac and cheese. My version is far superior.
