8 ounces whole wheat pasta shells or other short pasta
1 large tomato
2 cups cooked black beans rinsed and drained
1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernals
1/4 cup salsa
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon tamari sauce or to taste
2 scallion


1. Bring a large pot of water to boil, and cook the pasta according to package directions.
2. While the pasta is cooking, purée the tomato in a blender (to yield about 1 cup). Transfer to a heavy, medium-size saucepan along with the beans, corn, salsa, basil, cumin, and tamari. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer covered for 4 to 5 minutes.
3. Drain the cooked pasta and return to the pot. Add the bean-corn mixture and toss well. Serve with a garnish of chopped scallions.
