Spinach, Bean, and Tomato Pasta

What's great about this recipe is that 1 serving of the pasta contains almost all of the fiber you need for the day, not to mention the significant amount of protein it contains. 

Spinach, Bean, and Tomato Pasta

2 tsp olive oil
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
2 cans diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano (do not drain)
1 can any white beans (I use Great Northern or Navy usually)
1 package fresh spinach
6 cups cooked whole wheat pasta
6 Tablespoons Romano or Parmesan cheese (grated)

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet.  In a separate pan start boiling water for linguine and get linguine cooked while you continue.  Add garlic, saute for a minute or so.  Add tomatoes and beans and bring to a boil.  

Cover with spinach, top with lid, reduce heat to low and simmer about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.  Spoon tomato/beans/spinach mixture over linguine and sprinkle with cheese.
