    This makes too much for two of us. I made 1/2 the recipe with all the corn & black beans. Next time I will use 2 c. pasta & 3/4 c. cottage cheese to balance out the vegies a little. I will also add a tsp of cumin for taste. Thanks for sharing! - 12/9/08

    this recipe was really good :)!!! I didn't have quite enough salsa so I added a can of Rotel Tomatoes with garlic lime and had only 1/2 the cheese, and as another person posted I added some Cumin... it was delicious.. thanks for sharing - 3/1/10
