Sundried Tomato Pasta and Beans

What you need: 

1 can cannellini beans (white kidney beans)
1 jar sun-dried tomatoes
1 onion, diced
2 carrots diced
a little tomato sauce or the liquid from the sundried tomatoes
a dash of red pepper flakes
dried basil
olive oil
1 package pasta (I use brown rice Rotini)

What you do: 

Cut up onion and carrots and dry in olive oil until fairly tender.
Add the sundried tomatoes (I get the ones in the jar from Dollar Tree!) and add a little of the oil/liquid that they are in. You can also use a little tomato sauce if you want it to be more saucey.
Add in the kale and a little water, enough that it isn't all sticking to the pan! and let cook for a bit until the kale is done to your liking.
Boil water in another pot and cook pasta.
Add beans in the dish and then the spices. I put too many red pepper flakes the first time I tried this so beware, haha! I like hot food but not that hot!
Add the pasta last and mix it all together!

I made a batch of this yesterday so I could bring my lunch this week.  I used ground cumin, ground ginger, garlic powder and curry powder cause that's what I had on hand. Very good, glad I have something new to do with kidney beans!
