  • Mexican Pasta Salad

    I thought I would post this over here the original way the recipe was typed. I used regular mayo and light sour cream and it was delish! I found this on a fitness site.

    Mexican Pasta Salad

    8 ounces medium shells, uncooked
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 (11 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
    1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
    3/4 cup sliced green onions
    1 (2 1/4 ounce) can sliced black olives
    3/4 cup fat free mayonnaise
    1/2 cup fat free sour cream
    1/4 cup salsa
    2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced

    Cook pasta, drain and rinse under cold water. Toss with oil and sprinkle with cumin and add salt to taste. Layer pasta, beans, corn, bell pepper, green onions and olives in a large glass bowl. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and salsa and mix well. Spread mixture evenly over top of pasta salad, sprinkle with cilantro, cover and refrigerate overnight.

      Bean, this pasta salad looks great!

      Thought for the day: Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away!
