another yummy (and healthy!) recipe....

So last night after I got all settled in I wanted to try another recipe from Better Homes and Gardens that I had found..... Winter Garden Pasta.

This is a recipe that has just a few ingredients and super easy to make! I love it when healthy is disguised as delicious!!!

8 ounces dried whole grain spaghetti
3 cups broccoli florets
1 14 1/2-oz can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, drained
1 15-oz can white kidney beans (cannellini beans), rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons no-salt-added tomato paste
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. In a 4-quart Dutch oven, cook pasta according to package, omitting the salt.
2. Add broccoli to pasta for the last 3 minutes of cooking, drain and return to Dutch oven.
3. Stir in tomatoes, beans, tomato paste, garlic, salt & pepper. Heat through.
4. Stir in parsley.
5. Sprinkle each serving with cheese.
