  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef and onion until beef is no longer pink. Drain grease, and stir in the chili, cream of mushroom soup, evaporated milk, mushrooms and black olives. Mix in 3/4 of the Cheddar cheese and the cooked shell pasta. Transfer the mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish, and sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the top is browned and bubbly.

This dish was okay, but nothing spectacular. It was easy to make, but a little bland. I used chili with tabasco sauce added, but it still needed a little bit of spice. I think an hour would have burned this dish in my oven. After about 35 minutes this dish was golden brown and bubbling. I'm going to try it again and add some cayenne pepper and garlic or something. Maybe some more vegetables to add a little crunch.

Sorry, but we did not care for this. My 9 year old son said it had a funny taste and would not finish his. My husband and I thought it tasted like canned chili (we used Wolf Brand). I don't know why this was rated so high.

Would love to give it more stars. Very easy to prepare and the taste is great. I would add just a little pepper but that's about it. Really liked it. Served it with the mayonaise biscuits from this site for a fantastic meal. Thanks. Myrna

This didn't have much taste,Husband and I didn't care for it. We had to add ranch dressing for extra flavour.

My dh enjoyed this casserole but I personally didn't like it. Too many different ingredients that in my opinion didn't taste well together.
