Mac & Cheese

This is a pretty different take on this dish. It's good!!

Here is what you will need:

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 ( I used a green bell pepper instead)
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 (I used cheddar this time)
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

*Drain pasta and add it to skillet

*Pour in 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.
