"I'm a big fan of pasta and loved the sauce. A lot different than your basic red sauce with meat"

"This was an awesome twist during our weekly meals. My family loves pasta, but with this black bean sauce it has just enough flavor and tastes great! I could easily see putting some type of meat with this recipe too!"

"My family loves the "chunkiness" of this sauce. Tonight I added ground beef and substituted diced zucchini squash for the green pepper. It made a very hearty meal for four teenagers!"

"My mom used to do this when we were kids. Just putting a drained can of black beans into spaghetti sauce instead of ground beef really mixes things up - and it's pretty good!"
