Now for a lot less philosophical post. I was so excited to create a recipe last night. When I was grocery shopping last week, I craved this kind of meal and made it up as I went. And it turned out deliciously. That doesn't always happen when I get to creating. Here it is:

Southwest Chicken Pasta

1 lb cooked chicken breast, sliced. (I grilled ours.)
1 can Southwest Pepperjack soup
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup black beans
Extra cheese, I used provolone because it was on hand (opt.)
1/2 box cooked penne pasta

Combine soup and milk in a pan. Whisk until smooth over medium heat. When bubbling add extra cheese (if you want to cut down spice a little), black beans, and chicken. Mix with cooked pasta and serve.
