1 can diced tomatoes w/green chillies
1-2 cloves garlic
3 cups dry penne pasta cooked
1 tsp cajun seasoning

chop garlic, dice onion and bell peppers, chunk up keilbassa, (I do it in rounds cut in 1/4's)

Add a bit of oil to a deep sided skillet and heat over medium high, add garlic, onions, and bell pepper sautee 4-5 minutes. Add cajun seasoning and Keilbassa saute 1-2 more minutes. Add in tomatoes and black beans bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Mix with cooked pasta and serve, top with shredded cheese if desired
That sounds SO good! I'll bet you could top rice or quinoa with this too if you aren't into pasta.
