Penne with Greens & Cannellini Beans

Submitted by: MRSNIX

Introduction

From the Dreamfields website. I used two cans of Cannellini Beans since this was meatless, and it made a little more than 8 servings. I know this really isn't vegetarian because of the chicken broth, but it made me choose a main category, and it doesn't fit any of the others. From the Dreamfields website.
