Servings : 6
Prep Time : 30 Mins.
Recipe : Ingredients:

1/4 pound vegetable crumbles (Morningstar Brand is what I use)

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 can (about 15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Mexican-style stewed tomatoes, undrained

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained

1 cup corn (frozen or can)

1 teaspoon Mexican seasoning

1/2 cup uncooked whole wheat elbow macaroni

1/3 cup reduced or no fat sour cream

1. Heat large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 5 minutes.

2. Stir beans, tomatoes with juice, corn and Mexican seasoning into saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Cover; reduce heat to low. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt. Rinse and drain pasta; stir into saucepan. Add vegetable crumbles then simmer, uncovered, 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through.

Note: The vegetable crumbles are pre cooked and need only to be warmed up. Cooking them too long will break them down and they no longer will have the texture of a ground meat.

4. Top each serving with dollop of sour cream. Garnish as desired.
