Make Your Own : Mexican Pasta

I got this awesome recipe off of  Baby A loved it and so did my italian husband!

Mexican Pasta

Original Recipe Yield 4 servings
  • 1/2 pound seashell pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped (I used frozen mixed peppers)
  • 1/2 cup sweet corn kernels (I used canned)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can peeled and diced tomatoes (I used 1.5 fresh)
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives (sorry, I don't like these...)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
  • salt and pepper to taste



  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. 
  2. While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Cook onions and pepper in oil until lightly browned, 10 minutes. Stir in corn and heat through. Stir in black beans, tomatoes, salsa, olives, taco seasoning and salt and pepper and cook until thoroughly heated, 5 minutes. 
  3. Toss sauce with cooked pasta and serve.
