“This is a tasty and colorful meatless meal. It has several ingredients, but is easy to put together on the stovetop. It's quite low in fat if you use the reduced-fat forms of the dairy products. This is adapted from Cook It Light by Jeanne Jones.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown onions and garlic in large skillet over medium heat, using a little water or a small amount of oil.
  2. Add crushed tomatoes, cumin, salt, pepper, chili powder, oregano and pepper flakes.
  3. Mix well and bring to a simmer.
  4. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered for about 15 minutes.
  5. Add green chiles, red peppers, beans and corn. Mix well and cook for 5 more minutes.
  6. Remove 1/2 cup of the mixture from the pan, mix it with the sour cream and then add this mixture back into the pan and mix well.
  7. To serve, place 1 cup of cooked pasta on each plate and top each serving with about 1 cup of the sauce.
  8. Top with 3 tablespoons of the grated cheese.
  9. I often combine the last steps and mix 2 or 3 cups of cooked pasta and the cheese right in with the sauce and serve the whole meal right out of the skillet.
