This lively, Latin-style dish is simple to make in the microwave and loved by all!

3 cups dry small shell pasta
2 cups water
15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 14 ounce cans peeled, diced tomatoes with Italian herbs and garlic, with juice
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
4 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients into a shallow microwaveable container. Cover and microwave on high for 15-18 minutes or until shell pasta is tender. Stir well and serve each portion with 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese sprinkled over the top. Serving suggestion: green tossed salad with oranges, tomatoes and balsamic vinegar.
