Vegetarian Taco Pasta is a easy and healthy meal that comes together in less than 30 minutes! Using whole wheat rotini makes it even healthier.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed or 1¾ cup cooked black beans
  • 2 cups water or broth for more flavoring
  • 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 cups whole wheat rotini (or your favorite pasta shape)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • cilantro optional garnish

Instructions

  • In a large pot on the stove, saute the onions and pepper in the olive oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add in the garlic powder, cumin and chili powder and saute for an additional minute.
  • Add in the beans, tomato sauce, water, and uncooked pasta. Stir and bring to a boil over medium heat. Once the pot is boiling, cover and let simmer 9-12 minutes, or until pasta is soft. Make sure to remove the lid and stir the contents of the pot occasionally to prevent the bottom burning onto the pan.
  • Take off the lid and mix in the cheese until melted. Salt and pepper the dish to taste. Sprinkle cilantro onto individual servings if desired. Enjoy!
