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! :) )
