Pasta with greens and beans is a classic combination in Italian cuisine, satisfying the heartiest of appetites.
You can vary this dish of pasta with different beans and greens each time you make it. Of course, you can vary the kind of pasta used as well. Give the dish a traditional Tuscan touch with a few raisins, or a briny lilt with olives or sun-dried tomatoes.
Some suggested greens to use: My favorite leafy green to use in this dish is green or rainbow chard, but curly or lacinato kale work well, too. If you enjoy bitter greens, this dish is lovely with broccoli rabe, too. All you need for a complete meal is a colorful salad.
