Ingredients

How to make it

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Add salt and pasta.
  • Cook for 6 to 8 minutes (it should be shy of “al dente”) and drain. Do not rinse.
  • Meanwhile, in a large pot over medium heat, bring the vegetable broth and water to a boil.
  • Mix in diced tomatoes and broccoli, reduce heat slightly and cook 2 minutes.
  • Add onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, oregano, cumin and black pepper. Cook 2 minutes, stirring.
  • Stir in the tomato paste, mixing well.
  • Add the black beans and spinach. Cook 7 – 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the drained pasta to the sauce mixture and mix gently to coat with sauce.
  • Add the Parmesan, stir well and simmer in the sauce for 5 minutes, until pasta is al dente.
  • *Note: Leftovers are delicious placed into individual casseroles or ramekins, topped with cheese and broiled!

    You can also make just the sauce and freeze it in individual portions - it reheats beautifully and is just as good on rice!
