White bean sauce with spinach & tomatoes over Linguine

Submitted by: KRYSTYL_ROSE

Introduction

This is a variation of a Recipe submitted by SparkPeople user TWINMOM143 - Skillet white beans, spinach, & tomatoes

I personally do not like the texture of beans over pasta, so I turned the beans into a sauce. I also used fresh tomatoes instead of canned.

    Loved this! Quick, easy, healthy and delicious! I used frozen spinach and more garlic, because I love garlic! I also used regular diced canned tomato and added my own basil! Thanks for the idea I will be eating this again! - 10/17/09

  • This did not taste good. It's hard to ruin pasta but this did the job. The sauce was bland and the whole dish was dry. - 3/30/14

  • I really like this dish, I didn'y use any cheese and I replace the linguine with brown rice. I also used the low sodium diced tomatoes, but next time I want to try fresh :) - 2/27/13
