Title: Pasta w/red peppers~ greens~ beans~ garlic &
Categories: Low-fat, Vegetarian
Yield: 4 Servings
1/2 c White beans
-- soaked in water overnight
1 Bay leaf
4 Garlic cloves; peeled
1/3 c Vegetable stock
2 Red bell peppers
-- cut into 1/2-inch strips
4 c Swiss chard or escarole
-- washed well and cut
-- into 1/2-inch strips
1 tb Grated lemon zest
1/2 ts Salt
Freshly ground pepper
2 tb Lemon juice
1/4 lb Penne pasta; uncooked
1/4 lb Farfalle pasta; uncooked
Rinse the beans, put them in a saucepan, and cover with 2 cups cold
water. Add the bay leaf and 2 cloves of garlic and bring to a boil
over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until tender, 45 to 60
minutes. Remove the pot from the heat.
Bring the vegetable stock to a simmer in a saute pan over moderate
heat. Add the pepper strips and simmer for 5 to 8 minutes, then add
the greens, 2 cloves of garlic that have been minced, and lemon zest
and stir well, until the greens are wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the
beans (most of the liquid will have been absorbed) from the cooking
liquid with a slotted spoon and add them to the peppers and greens.
Warm through. Season to taste with the salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
Meantime, cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain
and toss with the beans and vegetables.
