This combination is marvelous and a nice change of pace from regular pasta and red sauce. The beans add a good dose of protein and fiber too!
Ingredients:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup green onions, sliced
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
2 14-1/2 oz cans no-added-salt whole tomatoes, undrained and chopped
15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
4 cups hot cooked pasta (any shape)
14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
Directions:
1 Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add green onions and sauté 5 minutes. Add oregano, basil, salt, peppers, garlic, and tomatoes; cover and simmer 10 minutes.
2 Add beans; cover and simmer an additional 5 minutes. Combine bean mixture, hot cooked pasta, and artichoke hearts in a large bowl. Toss well. Serve well or at room temperature.
3 ENJOY!
