Makes: 4 Servings
Total Cost: $$$$
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Pasta is the perfect partner for nutrient-rich vegetables. High in fiber, this Tuscan-style pasta dish is gently tossed with a vegetable trio - fresh escarole and flavorful, canned cannellini beans and tomatoes.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces whole wheat pasta
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 large garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  • 2 1/4 cups curly escarole (1/4 pound, sliced)
  • 16 ounces cannellini beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 can 14.5 ounce diced tomatoes with juice (undrained)
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (thinly sliced)

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to the package directions.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add garlic and cook until slightly browned (less than a minute).
  4. Add escarole; stirring occasionally until wilted, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add beans, tomatoes with their juice and wine.
  6. Simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper; stir in basil and heat through.
  8. Drain pasta and toss with the sauce.

Notes

- Save money by using canola oil in place of olive oil.
- Use any of your favorite hearty leafy greens in place of escarole, such as collards, chard, or spinach.
