One Pot Salsa Pasta

Wednesdays are crazy for me during the school year. The school day starts with meetings…often ends with meetings…and is followed up by church responsibilities. Oh yea, and I teach 8th grade all day! šŸ™‚ I often treat myself to dinner on the town as a reward for the craziness, but today, I acted responsibly and planned a quick and (moderately) healthy meal!

  • salsa pastaIn large pot, brown 1 pound of sausage (or other meat of choice).
  • Drain meat and add…
    • 2 cups of chicken broth
    • 1 cup of milk
    • 1 box of pasta
    • 1 jar of salsa
  • Bring liquid to a boil and allow to simmer for 15ish minutes, until liquid is absorbed and pasta is soft.
  • Stir in…
    • 1 can of black beans, rinsed
    • 4 ounces of Mexican blend cheese

I desperately wish I would have bought corn to toss in this as well. Otherwise, the salsa was the perfect shortcut: peppers, onions, and all the spice without all the prep work. Dollop on a spoonful of sour cream if you are feeling adventurous…and speaking of adventurous…just imagine the possibilities for this recipe considering the myriad of salsas out there!
