Low-Fat Black Bean-Pasta Salad (Vegan)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Prose

This colorful creation has a lot more flavor and a lot less fat than traditional pasta salad. It's easy to throw together, and with lots of vegetables and vegetarian protein it can be served as a light entree or a hearty side dish, perfect for potlucks, picnics or packed lunches. It can easily be made gluten-free by subbing gluten-free pasta.

I love this! It's easy to make and has great taste. I suppose the taste does largely depend on the type of salsa you use.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the pasta, beans, and veggies.
  3. Toss with salsa and lemon pepper. This can be served immediately, but the flavor is better if it is refrigerated for a few hours or overnight.
