Fresh Pomodoro Pasta, White Beans & Olives

Capture the flavor of vine-ripe tomatoes with this elegant yet ultra-quick fresh tomato sauce. Although it's an uncooked sauce, the beans are heated briefly in the olive oil and garlic just to flavor them.

Serves 4

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces whole-wheat pasta shells, tubetti, ziti or rigatoni
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 15-ounce c cannellini beans, rinsed
  • 1 large clov garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ripe tomatoes, diced (about 3 cups)

  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
