Got this from Sparkpeople.com, Southwest Pasta Salad
1 - 8oz box of Wheat Pasta - I buy the Ronzoni Pasta, but you can use whatever
1 - 15 oz can Organice Whole Kernel Corn
1 - 15 oz can Organic Black Beans
1 cup Salsa (organic)
I cup shredded, low fat cheddar cheese
1 cup diced organic green pepper (bell pepper)
Optional: add garlic powder, black pepper, or cayenne pepper to taste (in any combination)
Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain, rinse and put into large bowl.
Drain and reserve the liquids from the canned corn and black beans.
Combine all ingredients with the cooked pasta in a large bowl and mix well. Add small amounts of the reserved canned liquids if desired.
Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate. Serve cool or at room temperature. Serves 8 as main course, or up to 16 as side dish.
