This feeds a family of four generously.

1 pound any short whole wheat pasta, boiled  

¼ to ½ cup olive oil

1 tablespoon minced garlic   

2 cans, 14.5 ea diced tomatoes (can use 1 can of tomatoes with chilies if you want)  

2-3 teaspoons dried oregano

2 cans beans of your choice, drained: Cannellini, kidney, chick peas, etc. 

1 bag, 8-10 oz, any fresh green, like spinach, swiss chard, etc.

Put pasta on to boil. While it is boiling, make sauce:

Heat oil and add garlic.  Cook for a minute over low heat.  Add everything but greens and cheese.  Bring to a boil.  Lower to a simmer and cook until pasta is done, about 12 minutes or so.   Add fresh greens.  Stir until just wilted.  Pour over pasta.  Sprinkle with cheese.
