Black beans combined with juicy red tomatoes and seasoned with the zest of lime, aromatic cumin, oregano, cilantro, and a generous jolt of Tabasco make a fabulous, festive and fiery pasta sauce. Toss with piping-hot, wagon wheel-shaped pasta, then all you need is a finishing touch of tangy feta. Pour some icy-cold beer just to cool things off a bit.
1/4 cup fruity olive oil
1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
1 1/3 cups drained canned black beans (frijoles negros), rinsed and well drained
1 pound fresh, ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced
Grated zest of 1 large lime
1 to 2 teaspoons tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese, at room temperature
Black Bean, Tomato, and Feta Sauce Recipe at
Combine olive oil, garlic, black beans, tomatoes, lime zest, Tabasco, oregano, cumin, and salt in pasta serving bowl. Set aside to warm to room temperature or, preferably, place the bowl (be sure it's heatproof) over the pasta pot to warm the ingredients while heating the water. Once the water comes to a boil, remove bowl and set aside.

Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain pasta well and immediately add to sauce in bowl. Sprinkle with cilantro and toss. Serve the feta cheese separately in a bowl for each person to add as they wish.

RECOMMENDED PASTA: 8 ounces rotelle (wagon wheels)

Sooooo goooood
I just tried this for the first time this weekend and it's definitely going in my book of favourites. I only did 1 tsp of the tabasco sauce since I'm still a bit of a sissy with spicy foods, and it was just perfect for me. Lips tingle a bit by the end of the meal, but it was all good :) The pasta is a bit of sweet and spicy, and the feta just adds the perfect touch to it all. Absolutely delicious, and so simple!! I've already recommended this recipe to people.
