    I make this all the time for a fast meal. However you can save a ton of calories if you don't use pasta or oil. Just cook the spinach and add any type of bean and tomatoes. Excellent choice. - 7/15/09

    This is really good; I used red onion, fresh tomatoes, and greek oregano from my garden, which gave it a little more spice;also used whole wheat linguine-a little too heavy with the beans. Next time I will use a lighter pasta or couscous, rice, etc. Very good flavor, will make again! - 7/14/09

    I swapped out the linguine for a blend of white and brown rices and blended in some Pecorino for the first nights dinner. For leftover I mixed in some seasoned bread crumbs and skillet fried them lilke hashbrowns. - 7/27/09

    This recipe is so easy to make, healthy and filling. I used spinach fettucine, and it was attractive as well as healthy! My husband loved it, too - we will definitely make it again. - 5/28/08

    Yummy and filling...my ghetto grocery store didn't have the diced tomatoes as listed so I used the fire roasted and added vegetable magic, oregano, and basil. I also used orzo as the pasta. - 7/3/09

    This was very good although I do advise you to drain the liquid out of the beans and the tomatoes because this was very soupy. I also made (turkey) italian sausage links on the side for the guys in the house. - 10/4/09

    I made this last night and am having it again for breakfast! I used whole wheat penne pasta instead of linguine and seasoned w/ No Salt and Pepper - Fantastic! I will add onion and green pepper to the garlic next time I make it, though for even bolder flavor. - 5/15/08
