Salsa Pasta 'n' Beans Recipe

Publisher Photo
This warm side dish from Laura Lunardi, of West Chester, Pennsylvania is well-seasoned with cumin, cilantro and salsa, so it adds a little zip to dinnertime. For people who like even more spice, it’s easy to change the salsa to a medium or hot variety.

I found this to be really lacking flavor, bland and boring.

We love this recipe! I often make it as a main dish since it has beans in it. Sometimes I use kidney or pinto beans instead of red beans, and sometimes I leave out the cilantro if I don't have any on hand.
