Spicy Cheese Pasta

Ingredients:

*Brown Rice Penne Pasta
*Grated cheese of your choice
(I used La Chulita)
*Tabasco sauce to taste
*Garlic powder to taste
*Salt (for pasta water)
*Black Pepper to taste

This pasta is a wonderful grown-up alternative to mac and cheese for those days when you need a little bowl of delicious comfort.

Cook pasta in salted water. Once at the desired texture (or if you are like me… when you remember you left it there) pour off excess water and mix in the grated cheese until it coats the pasta to your liking. Add tabasco sauce and garlic powder to the pasta and mix again. Place in individual bowls and add black pepper over the top.
