White beans, Spiral pasta, and Lobster (or other white fish, or chicken)
If you are avoiding seafood because of mercury concerns, try this with cooked chicken cubes. This is one of my family’s favorite meals.
8 oz. dried rice corkscrew noodles (or corn or quinoa)
1 15-19 oz. can of cannellini beans (white kidney) or other white beans like Great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup gfcf chicken broth (I use homemade, it tastes better)
4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cups plum tomatoes coarsely chopped
12 oz cooked lobster or frozen cod fillets, or chicken cubes
1/4 cup snipped flat leaf parsely
1 tsp. cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
extra parsely and olive oil
Cook pasta, rinse, drain, toss with a little olive oil, and set aside. In a blender or food processor combine 3/4 cup of the drained beans and the chicken broth. Cover and process until smooth. Add to the pan used to cook the pasta; bring to boiling. Return pasta to the pan. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook garlic in olive oil for 1 minute. Add remaining beans, lobster (or whatever) , parsley, pepper, and salt. Heat through.
Add tomato mixture to hot pasta; toss to coat. Serve immediately. Top with parsley and additional olive oil.
