    6      tablespoons   Dry white wine

      1/8  teaspoon      To 1/4 t red pepper flakes
      1/2  cup           Frozen corn kernels
   15      ounces        Can no-salt-added black
                         Beans; rinsed -- drained
    9      ounces        Smoked turkey breast -- cut

 Heat a large nonstick pan until it is very hot. Reduce heat to
 medium-high and add 2 teaspoons of the oil and the onion. Saute the
 onion until it softens and begins to brown. Add garlic to onion as it
 cooks.
 
  Add red peppers to the onion as it cooks, then cook a few minutes
 longer. When pepper begins to soften add the wine; reduce heat and
 continue cooking until the peppers are soft, a few minutes 
  In a bowl large enough to hold all the ingredients, whisk the remaining
 2 teaspoons oil with the vinegar, cumin and red pepper flakes.
 Stir the corn into the onion mixture and cook a couple of minutes to
 heat through.
 
  Add turkey pieces to the bowl with the cooked vegetables and black
 beans. Stir in warm, drained pasta. Serve warm.
