Pasta with a kick

Recipe Wednesday! Today is a dinner meal I made. I buy canned whole tomatoes with no skins on them. I can usually get a couple meals from each can since it’s just me. Well I had some in the fridge from another meal that I need to use.I made the sauce first of course. I started by adding some coconut oil to a pan. Then I chopped up some onion and jalapeno and added it to the pan when it got hot with some salt and pepper. I peeled some garlic (lots of garlic actually) so it would be ready to chop up and add when the time was right. I also had my other ingredients ready to go which were the tomatoes, black beans, and some green onions to top it with. I usually add parsley, but didn’t have any. Once the onions and jalapeno cooked a bit I added the garlic, black beans, a couple chopped up dried chili’s, and some tumeric. After that cooked a bit I crushed the tomatoes up over the pan with my hands and cooked it a little before adding the juice the tomatoes were in. I let this simmer and added my pasta to my water that was boiling by now. While that cooked I sliced a radish up to top my salad. I buy lettuce at Aldi’s sometimes and I get the pack that has four small heads in it. I can usually get a couple salads out of it. I made a simple dressing out of whole grain mustard, lemon juice, salt, pepper, a pinch of sugar, ¬†and a little water. I shake that up in my little thing I use for dressings. It’s not a thick dressing, but has lots of flavor. Once the pasta was aldente I added it to the sauce to finish cooking. I let that go and once it was finished I plated it up with the green onions, dressed my salad with the radish on top, and sprinkled some chia seeds on top of that. Then I enjoyed.
