I made this molto healthy and super easy recipe last night night and Brian and I thought it was so good I had to share. Before I left work, I did a search for psta fagioli and came upon this winner:

  • 1 (29 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 2 (14 ounce) cans great cannelini beans, undrained

  • 1 (14 ounce) can chopped spinach, drained

  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 3 cups water

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • handful of fresh basil

  • 1/2 pound dittalini

  • I have committed myself to eating no processed foods before the wedding and I am hoping that though there were a lot of canned ingredients in here, I did OK, minus the pasta. I'm sure using everything fresh would make this much better, but for a weekday dinner it ain't too shabby. Paired with a glass of sauvignon blanc and a multigrain baguette, delicioso!


    1. yum! Never had it with spinach which I love so will give it a go!

    2. mmm! and yay to the wine and baguette! :)

    3. One of my most favorite recipes. Perfect with a hot loaf of hot garlic bread.
