mexican pasta salad

Tonight I made a pasta salad. It was ok, but i was sort of disappointed that it had so many calories, etc. I really wonder if something isn't coming up incorrectly in my MasterCook program. It would be good with black olives and cooked chicken too!

Mexican Pasta
6 oz Smart Taste Pasta
15 oz pinto beans, canned, rinsed & drained
14 oz. roasted tomatoes, drained
10 oz tomatoes w/ green chilies, drained
4 oz Velveeta Light
15 oz Fiesta Corn

Cook pasta in boiling water. meanwhile, combine all other ingredients. Heat in microwave until cheese is melted. Drain pasta and add to mixture.
