St. Patrick's Pasta

I'm not sure how this is St. Patrick's Pasta, except that there's green in it. But, it sure is tasty! I got this recipe through Happy Herbivore Meal Mentor

4-oz dry noodles, ie rotini, macaroni, smaller pastas are better 
¼ cup (2-oz) vegetable broth 
½ small onion, diced 
1 garlic clove, minced 
15-oz can white beans
garlic powder 
onion powder 
3 cups fresh spinach 
vegan parmesan or nutritional yeast (optional) 
smoked paprika (optional)

  1. Cook pasta via package instructions. 
  2. Drain, reserving ¼-cup cooking water. 
  3. Rinse pasta under cool water, set aside. 
  4. Sauté onion and garlic in oil until translucent. 
  5. Add beans (with their liquid), stirring to combine.  
  6. Turn off heat and mash the beans partially with a fork, or leave whole. 
  7. Season with salt and pepper, plus onion and garlic powder as desired. 
  8. Stir in pasta water to thin as needed, then toss with cooked pasta. 
  9. Turn heat to low and add fresh spinach.
  10. Cook, using tongs to stir around and incorporate, until spinach is soft and combined. 
  11. Top with vegan parmesan or nutritional yeast and a dash of smoked paprika.
