Spinach Cannellini Pasta

Spinach Cannellini Pasta

the lunch options in the Garment District these days, so I’ve started bringing my lunch. They’ve been consisting of a grain, protein (in the form of a bean) and veggies.  Interestingly enough, I’m not alone – Healthy. Happy. Life. recently posted a recipe using similar ingredients. I may swap the pasta out for brown rice or quinoa, either way, it looks pretty simple, delicious and I’m excited to try it!
