There’s something so comforting about a home cooked meal.
This past week I made this pasta for friends of mine who just adopted the most beautiful little baby boy.¬† Every new parent deserves the joy and luxury of having friends and family provide meals, while ooing and aaahing over their new addition.
This pasta is wholesome, healthy, filling, delicious and super simple.
Lean ground beef, whole wheat pasta, black beans, corn, tomatoes, cumin, oregano, garlic, onion, chili powder, bell pepper, jalapenos (opt) and tabasco (opt) and mixed cheeses come together to create a wonderfully flavorful, filling and simple pasta.
The garlic, onion, bell peppers and jalapenos are cooked over medium high heat until they sweat and release their flavors, then the ground beef and seasonings are added and cooked.
While the ground beef and veggies are cooking, the pasta cooks, the beans and corn are rinsed and then once everything is finished cooking, it all gets mixed together and prepped for freezing, storing or baking.
Top the one ready to bake with cheese and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until the edges of the cheese are crispy golden brown and bubbling.
Serve hot and fresh, topped with fresh cilantro
and with a side of salsa or sour cream
