Recipe Ingredients for Black Bean and Tomato Pasta

2 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced, including green tops
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tbs lemon juice
15 oz black beans, canned, well rinsed and drained
1 Salt
1 Pepper
3/4 lb pasta, bow ties
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 tbs cilantro, chopped

Recipe Directions for Black Bean and Tomato Pasta

  1. In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat.

  2. Add the garlic and sauté until soft, just a few minutes. Do not allow to brown.

  3. Add the scallions and cumin and cook briefly.

  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice.

  5. Add the beans and toss to coat.

  6. Season with salt and pepper.

  7. In a large pot, bring at least 4 quarts water to a rolling boil. Add 1 tablespoon salt.

  8. Add the pasta, stir to separate, and cook until less than al dente. The pasta should be undercooked.

  9. Before draining, reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Then drain and return the pasta to the pot.

  10. Add the reserved pasta water to the black bean mixture, stir, and add to the pasta.

  11. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook until the sauce is thick enough to coat the pasta.

  12. Remove from the heat.

  13. Carefully stir in the cherry tomatoes and cilantro just before serving.
