I absolutely love that many of the convenience foods that are available to us today are also healthy.
16oz Farfalle (Bowtie) pasta
1 9.5oz box Morningstar Farms Spicy Black Bean Burgers, thawed and crumbled
1 onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 15oz can black beans, drained
1 15oz can corn, drained
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1 packet dry ranch dressing mix
1 cup salsa
1 cup sour cream
2 cups Mexican blend cheese
Boil pasta to al dente, according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat a little bit (maybe a tablespoon) of olive oil. Cook crumbled Spicy Black Bean Burgers, onion, and bell pepper for 4-5 minutes. Add in garlic for the last 30 seconds - 1 minute.
In a large bowl, combine contents of skillet, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, salsa, sour cream, ranch dressing mix, salsa, and pasta. Pour into greased 9x13" dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until casserole is bubbling. Turn on broiler for 5 more minutes to brown cheese slightly on top.
Incredibly easy and delicious!

1 9.5 oz box Morningstar Farms Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Burgers, thawed and crumbled

Prepare the instant mashed potatoes according to package directions. Layer over the top of the mixture in the dish.
