You can't be too busy to cook when easy recipes like this one exist. In the time it takes to cook pasta, you can assemble a full and healthful meal. The beans add creamy body to the dish, while the spinach, lightly wilted after a toss with the hot pasta, brings freshness. Olive oil, garlic, and cheese form a light sauce that pulls everything together. Top with lots of pepper.
