Parmesan Black Bean Pasta and Chicken

Prep time: 20min
Cook time: 15min
Serves 2-4 depending on portion size

7oz Black Bean Pasta (Click on the link to see what the packaging looks like. I don't buy it from Amazon. You should be able to find this at Whole Foods or Central Market for around $3.75. The only ingredients are Black Beans and Water) 
3T Olive Oil 
1/4t Cracked Pepper
1lb Fresh Raw Chicken Thighs (I get ours from Trader Joe's and the taste is fantastic) 
2-4T Blackening Seasoning (depending on how spicy you want it) 
1/2lb Aged Parmesan (freshly grated) 

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. While waiting for your water to boil. Preheat your grill. Grill chicken with blackening seasoning sprinkled on both sides. While the chicken is on the grill, follow instructions on your pasta bag for how long to cook your pasta (I cooked our black bean pasta for 8-9min). Strain the pasta and place back in the pot. Coat with olive oil and pepper.  Cut your chicken into strips. Serve the pasta and then place strips of chicken on top and sprinkle parmesan on top. Enjoy!
