DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pasta as label directs.
  • Meanwhile, in 12 inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add onion and cook, covered for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  • Stir in garlic and oregano and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Stir in beans, vinegar, salt and pepper; cook 5 minutes, stirring often.
  • When pasta has cooked to desired doneness, remove 1 cup cooking water and reserve.
  • Drain pasta; return to saucepot.
  • Add spinach, bean mixture and reserved cooking water; toss gently to combine.
  • Notes: I usually use the large corkscrew pasta istead of fusilli.
  • Actually, I've made it with several kinds of pasta--whatever I have on hand.
  • Even egg noodles worked fine.
  • Strangely, fusilli was my least favorite pasta to make this with.
  • Also, I use the chopped garlic that comes in a jar.
  • And thawed, frozen spinach works fine--you'll need much less of the reserved water.
