Salsa and Black Bean Pasta

This originally was a Salsa and Black Bean Stuffed Shells recipe, which I still make occasionally, and which we really like. I came up with this version when I was in a hurry (that happens to me all the time!), and I didn't have time stuff each shell. My family prefers it this way, and it is easier for younger children to eat. It is SUPER easy, and totally delicious!


1 pint fresh salsa or pico de gallo
1 can black beans
1 lb. hamburger
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 c. mozzarella cheese

Cook 1 lb. pasta (I use farfalle or penne) according to box directions. While it's cooking, brown the hamburger in a large skillet with the garlic until cooked through. Add the salsa and black beans, heat through. Toss the hamburger mixture with the pasta in a large baking dish, then sprinkle generously with cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven until cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
