I had some extra cilantro in the fridge and didn't want to throw it away. Instead, I came up with this delightful and filling family recipe. Everyone just loved it! Vikki Rebholz-West Chester, Ohio

"Really like this recipe. Do recommend saving some pasta water in case you need a bit more liquid. Used black beans instead of corn because that's what I had on hand and added a handful of kale for some extra nutrition. Good, easy, quick meal, will make it again."
