Heart Healthy Recipes

Greek Pasta with Tomatoes & White Beans

You can vary the recipe by using chickpeas instead of cannellini beans and grated Romano cheese in place of feta.

  • 2 (14.5-oz) cans tomato sauce w/basil, garlic, and oregano (or add herbs and garlic)
  • 1 (19 oz) can cannellini beans or other white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (10 oz) bag fresh spinach, chopped (about 8 cups)
  • 4 cups hot cooked penne (about ½ lb uncooked tubular-shaped pasta)
  • ¼ cup (1 oz) finely crumbled feta cheese

Combine tomatoes and beans in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes. Add spinach; cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, stirring occasionally. Place 1 cup pasta on each of four plates; top each serving w/ 1 ¼ cup sauce & tablespoon cheese. Yield: 4 servings.
