    Mirj's Note:

    Pasta, salsa, chiles, black beans, it's a great combination. No added fats, and if you are food combining, it's a great carb meal if you use whole wheat pasta.

      Excellent vegetarian meal. The chilies add just the right amount of spice. I would imagine chicken would be an easy addition as well.

      This was pretty good, but I agree with one of the previous posters - I think it needs some chicken or something. It just felt like something was missing. It was super easy though! I brought some for lunch today and I think I will eat it cold, I have a feeling I will like it better that way. I used medium salsa, and next time I think I will use mild. A little too much spice for me. I also added some fat free shredded cheddar on top, it was a nice addition. Overall, this is as simple and tasty pasta dish that can be thrown together in a flash.
