Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 carrots sliced
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can Italian-style stewed tomatoes

  • 3 cups orecchiette pasta
  • 3 cups shell pasta

  • 4 cups fresh spinach trimmed and torn in bite-sized pieces

Method

In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic, carrot, onion, salt and pepper, stirring, for about 8 minutes or until softened. Add tomatoes, breaking up with spoon; bring to boil. Stir in beans and ham (if using) until heated through.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta and potato for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain and return to pot. Add bean mixture and spinach; toss gently to coat. Serve sprinkled with cheese.
