Recipe: Pasta with spinach, garbanzos and raisins

Pasta with spinach, garbanzos and raisins — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

The key to this recipe is to have the pasta and sauce done at the same time so that they don''t overcook. This is a great recipe for two cooks in the kitchen.


Directions

Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente (tender), 10 to 12 minutes, or according to the package directions. Drain the pasta thoroughly.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and garlic over medium heat. Add the garbanzos and chicken broth. Stir until warmed through. Add the raisins and spinach. Heat just until spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes. Don''t overcook.

Divide the pasta among the plates. Top each serving with 1/6 of the sauce, 1 teaspoon Parmesan cheese and peppercorns to taste. Serve immediately.
