Ingredients

  • 2 cups (6 ounces) uncooked gluten-free rice penne (such as DeBoles)
  • 3/4 cup canned no-salt-added navy beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 12 pitted kalamata olives, coarsely chopped

  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated Asiago cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; add beans during last 1 minute of cooking. Drain pasta and beans, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water. Place pasta, beans, and reserved pasta water in a large shallow pasta bowl.
  2. 2. While pasta cooks, heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add tomatoes; cook 2 minutes, stirring often. Stir in green onions and next 3 ingredients; cook 2 minutes or just until tomatoes are thoroughly heated. Remove from heat.
  3. 3. Add spinach and next 4 ingredients to pasta mixture. Toss well. Top with tomato mixture.
Note:

You can easily strip rosemary leaves from their tough, inedible stems by holding the top of a stem in one hand, and then pulling in the opposite direction of the way the leaves grow.
