I kinda threw this together to use up things and it was really good!!
8 ounces smallish pasta(I used medium shells)
1/2 cup miracle whip--this was just to use up the last of a jar but could be removed without any effect I think
16 ounces salsa
2 cups cheese--I used half colby jack/monterey jack and half mozzarella
1 can black beans--I used leftover beans from our black bean burrito night
Boil pasta, cool completely then throw the rest in stir and put in the fridge to let the flavors mix. I left it in an hour but anywhere up to a day would work fine:)
