Pasta e fagioli
1 Can Great Northern Beans
1 Can Water
2 Garlic cloves
2 Bunches of Escarole greens
1 ¼ Cup Diatellini or Tubettini pasta
Boil 1 can of beans (with all liquid in the can) in 1 can of water, a splash of olive oil, salt & pepper to taste.
When beans are soft mash a few to thicken the sauce.
In separate pan sauté the garlic in olive oil and add Escarole greens just to wilt. Add this Escarole/garlic mix to the pan with the beans and cook greens til tender.
Last step can be done 2 ways:
Either boil the pasta until ½ way done in a separate pan then add to the Escarole/bean mixture
Add 1 ¼ Cup of Diatellini or Tubettini pasta directly to the Escarole/bean mixture and cook til pasta done.
Serve w/grated cheese & crusty Italian bread if desired.
