Zucchini and Beans on Pasta

Zucchini and Beans on Pasta

Submitted by: Cheryl

My garden is bursting with zucchini and basil right now, so I thought I’d share a favorite recipe. I’m not sure where it came from, I think a magazine. I jotted it down on a post-it and it became something the whole family loves.

3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
2-3 zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced
1 16-oz can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 16-oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C chopped fresh basil
1 lb bag of rigatoni or chunky pasta of your choice, cooked according to package directions and drained

Sauté garlic and pepper flakes in a few tablespoons of water or broth, about 1 minute. Add zucchini and sauté about 5 minutes, adding more liquid if needed. Add beans, tomatoes and salt. Simmer 5 minutes. Top with basil and serve on pasta.
