  • 1 (14.5oz) can chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 Cup salsa
  • 1/4 Cup sliced black olives
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix.  More or less depending on how spicy you want the taste. The salsa has spice into it too.
  • Salt and pepper to taste

HOW TO:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Add pasta and cook until al dente, drain.
  3. While pasta is cooking, heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet.
  4. Cook onions and pepper in oil until lightly browned.
  5. Stir in corn and heat through.
