Black Beans and Angel Hair Pasta



16 oz. can of black beans, drained

1 small can of tomatillo salsa (salsa Verde)

1 clove of garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. of olive oil

1 Tbsp. cumin

8 oz. angel hair pasta

picante sauce

fresh cilantro

sour cream (optional)





Boil the pasta according to the package directions.


In the meantime, sauté the garlic in the olive oil until

tender. Do not brown. Add the black beans, salsa Verde, and

cumin. Allow to cook for about 3-5 minutes or until heated

through and the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat.


Drain the pasta and make 'nests' on the dinner plates out

of it. Spoon the bean mixture into the nests and then add

picante sauce, a dollop of sour cream and a few sprigs of

cilantro for garnish.


This serves 2 people with healthy appetites but is enough

for 3 regular portions.
