Pasta with Garlicky White Beans and Spinach

Pretty dang good pasta! 🙂

Got this recipe from the Vegetarian Times website. Mutilated it to suit my needs (as in, I had spinach that I needed to use so I subbed it in for the Swiss Chard that the recipe online says to use). Also, I used spaghetti for this rather than whole wheat pasta (didn’t want to go to the store just to grab ONE thing) but I kept the whole wheat pasta in the ingredients down below because, let’s face it, that’s a MUCH healthier alternative if you have it. You can find this recipe in its original un-Erined format online: here!
