Mid-life Without the Crisis

It really isn't the destination, but the journey. May be cliche, but it's true.

Southwest Pasta

Sorry the picture is blurry.  I'm a better cook than photographer!
I thought I'd share a recipe with you.  This is something I created myself and you can adjust amounts to your desired tastes.  You could even adjust ingredients.

  • 1/4 pound ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped green peppers
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 can black beans, drained
  • 1 chopped garlic clove
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions
Brown the ground meat with the onions and green peppers in a small amount of olive oil.  Drain excess fat if necessary.  Add in remaining ingredients except pasta and heat through, adjusting seasoning to fit your tastes.  Add in a spoonful or two of the pasta cooking water if needed to make it saucier.  Mix in the drained pasta and serve.  This makes a couple of large servings.  Hope you enjoy!
