Not counting oil, salt and pepper, this filling pasta dinner comes together with only five ingredients. The beans release some of their starch as the dish cooks, making for a luscious, creamy sauce. Be sure to use a skillet that’s large enough to hold the fettuccine when it’s uncooked—or break it in half if you need to.

Ingredients

Uncooked fettucine

8 oz

Canned cannellini beans

1½ cup(s), rinsed and drained

Olive oil

2 tsp

Kosher salt

½ tsp

Black pepper

½ tsp

Uncooked shrimp

1 pound(s), large, peeled and deveined

Lemon zest

2 tsp

Fresh baby spinach

10 oz

Fresh lemon juice

3 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, pour 3 ½ cups water; add the fettuccine, beans, oil, salt, and black pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until the pasta is almost al dente, stirring and tossing frequently with tongs.
  2. Stir in the shrimp and lemon zest; cook 2 minutes. Gradually add the spinach, tossing constantly until the spinach wilts. Add more water, ¼ cup at a time, if the mixture becomes too dry. Remove the pan from the heat; stir in the lemon juice.
  3. Serving size: 1 ¾ cups
