 Hi all!  I made this recipe last night and it was GREAT.  It makes 6 servings,
 and since I cooked just for me . . . I've got left overs for lunch all week!
 Ziti with Cannelli Sauce
 1/4 cup vegetable broth
 1 large onion, chopped
 3 cloves garlic, minced
 6 fresh ripe plum tomatoes, peeled and chopped
 one 1-pound bag cut-leaf frozen spinach or 4 cups fresh spinach loosely packed
 one 20-ounce can Italian cannellini (white beans), drained and rinsed
 2 tablespoons tomato paste
 1/2 cup water
 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
 salt to taste
 one 1-pound package ziti, cooked according to directions
 grated fatfree Parmesan cheese (optional)
 Heat vegetable broth in a large skillet, and saute the onion and garlic
 until they are sizzling.  Add the chopped tomatoes and cook, uncovered,
 until the tomatoes soften, 5 minutes.
 Add the spinach, beans, tomato paste, and water; simmer uncovered until
 the spinach is cooked, 5 minutes.  Add the pepper flakes.  Taste to correct
 the seasoning.  You may want to add salt and more pepper.
 Toss the ziti with half the sauce, put it in a serving dish, and spoon the
 remaining sauce on top.  Pass grated cheese at the table.
 As I said this makes 6 servings, and this recipe was found in the cookbook
 called _Superfoods: 300 Recipes for Food That Heal Body and Mind_ by
 Dolores Riccio.  ENJOY!  (I did!  :)  )
