    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

  • I can't eat peppers so I skipped the salsa and used diced tomatoes, drained. I added some Taco seasoning to give it the Mexican taste. It was great. - 8/29/18
