Black Bean “Pasta”

Standard

Rob and I picked up a new item at Costco last week:

I love black beans, so I’m very curious about these. They have great reviews, too! Of course, a Mexican-style dish makes the most sense to me. A red curry sauce is also suggested on their website. I’ll try that when I’m cooking just for me. But I am also considered making a light garlic cream sauce and just adding some veggies. I’m planning to try this “pasta” out next week. How would you use these?

But as for this week:
