Oldiesmann: I'm not aware of any Jenny. Not sure why activity has died down on this site so much though 2023-06-12, 00:06:36

JennyW: Also, does anyone know other photo sharing sites that are Christian? 2023-05-16, 08:47:03

JennyW: Hello Everyone! I really miss activity on this site. I've been discouraged by photography sites where you have to sort through so much explicit content in order to see photos that truly glorify God. I'd love to see this site pick up again. 2023-05-16, 08:46:36

Mexican Pasta Salad

(adapted from, Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites)



1/2 lb. short, chunky pasta, such as small shells, orecchiette, rotini or penne

1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels

3 green onions, minced

1 cup chopped bell peppers, red, green, yellow, or a mixture

1- 1/2 cups cooked kidney beans, pinto beans, pink beans, or black beans (15-oz. can, drained and rinsed)

1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes

1/4 cup sliced Spanish olives (optional)

2 tsp. olive oil

3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice, lime juice, or a combination

2 tsp. ground cumin

2-4 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

salt to taste

½ cup grated reduced-fat Cheddar cheese (optional)

prepared Mexican-style red salsa (optional)



Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Cook the pasta for about 10 minutes, until just tender. 

Add the corn during the final 2 minutes of cooking.  Drain the pasta and corn, rinse with cold water,

and set aside to drain for a few minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the green onions, bell peppers, beans, tomatoes, olives (if used), olive oil, lemon or lime juice, cumin, cilantro, and black pepper in a large bowl.  Mix in the pasta and corn and add salt to taste.  If desired, top each serving with a tablespoon of grated Cheddar and a spoonful of salsa.  Serve immediately or chill to serve later.
