  3. When pasta is cooled, pour into mixing bowl and add the chopped bell pepper, celery, black beans and mayonnaise.
  4. Add Cajun seasoning to taste. Stir well, coating all pasta and vegetables with mayonnaise.
  5. Pour into covered container and refrigerate until well chilled.
  6. Note: diced cooked chicken can be added. Immediately before serving add sliced avocado and/or finely shredded Mozzarella cheese.
