This dish is so fresh and simple. It is a meal or a welcome side to any meal.



1 box favorite macaroni
1 head romaine lettuce
1 1lb. 13oz. can Cannellini Beans (drained & rinsed)
4 cloves garlic (crushed & chopped)
1 quart Baby Bella mushrooms (halved)
¼ cup sun dried tomatoes (sliced)
¼ tsp Red Pepper Flakes
¼ tsp Black Pepper
3 tblsps Olive Oil
Grated Locatelli or Romano Cheese for garnish


In a large frying pan heat the olive oil with the garlic, sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms for a minute or two.

Add the Romaine lettuce on top and cook down just until the Romaine is wilted. Add the Cannellini beans, red pepper flakes and black pepper and toss. Remove pan from heat and set aside while preparing the macaroni.

You do not want to overcook and wilt the Romaine!

Prepare the macaroni as directed and add to the Romaine & Cannellini.

Garnish with a little extra olive oil and grating cheese.

I am a pasta lover and this looks so refreshingly different. It is easy to get into a habit of fixing the same dishes over andover. this is yet another pasta dish of yours that I will try. :D

Me too! Theresa! So simple, so healthy and so easy! You could use mini Penne or mini Zitti, and you could use a variety of greens! So simple and yet so clever!
