Ziti with Spinach, Tomatoes, and White Beans
8 oz, ziti or other tube pasta
3 large clove(s), minced
1 pound(s), baby leaves
Canned white beans
15½ oz, rinsed and drained
Reduced-sodium chicken broth
Grated Parmesan cheese
- Cook the pasta according to the package directions, omitting the salt if desired. Drain and keep warm.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, about 1 minute. Add the spinach, a handful at a time, stirring until all the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
- Add the white beans, grape tomatoes, broth, salt, and pepper to the skillet; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cook until the broth is slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the pasta and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 1 minute longer. Serve sprinkled with the Parmesan. Yields about 1 1/4 cup per serving.
