Black Bean Rotini

Yield: Serves 4. Each serving: 1 cup.



8 oz whole-wheat rotini or other small-shaped pasta
3-1/2 cups low-sodium pasta sauce
1 cup boiled black beans, drained
2 tsp Italian seasoning
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese

Bring 1-2 quarts of water to a rolling boil over high heat in a large (3-qt) pan. Add the pasta and bring back to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the pasta is al dente or slightly tender with a bite in the center, about 8 minutes. Drain the pasta in a colander and rinse lightly with water. Place the pasta in a large microwaveable container and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Microwave on full power for 6 minutes or until hot and the pasta is tender. Serve hot.
