For a natural home for leftover chili, we turned to Johnny Marzetti—a dish that combines pasta, ground beef, onion, celery, green pepper, mushrooms, and tomatoes, topped with cheese and baked. To speed the transformation from chili to Johnny, and to save on cleanup, we opted to make this a one-skillet meal.

Elbow macaroni are traditional in Johnny Marzetti, but our tasters liked the way rotini trapped more of the sauce.
