Black Bean Pasta

A few days ago, I experimentally tried to make a tomato-and-black-bean soup. I used lots of fresh cumin. It wasn't great; it tasted like chili with the wrong texture. Tonight I made pasta with it. I sauteed garlic, black olives, and a green chili for a while, then added the mixture of tomato puree and beans, then tossed the spaghetti with the whole concoction. I was only trying to use up leftovers, but it was actually pretty good. I cleaned the plate.
