       Title: Pasta w/Red Peppers, Greens, Beans, Garlic & Lemon Zest
  Categories: Low-fat, Vegetarian
       Yield: 4 servings
  
     1/2 c  White beans
            -- soaked in water overnight
       1    Bay leaf
       4    Garlic cloves; peeled
     1/3 c  Vegetable stock
       2    Red bell peppers
            -- cut into 1/2-inch strips
       4 c  Swiss chard or escarole
            -- washed well and cut
            -- into 1/2-inch strips
       1 tb Grated lemon zest
     1/2 ts Salt
            Freshly ground pepper
       2 tb Lemon juice
     1/4 lb Penne pasta; uncooked
     1/4 lb Farfalle pasta; uncooked
  
   Rinse the beans, put them in a saucepan, and cover with 2 cups cold water.
   Add the bay leaf and 2 cloves of garlic and bring to a boil over high
   heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until tender, 45 to 60 minutes.  Remove
   the pot from the heat.
   
   Bring the vegetable stock to a simmer in a saute pan over moderate heat.
   Add the pepper strips and simmer for 5 to 8 minutes, then add the greens,
   2 cloves of garlic that have been minced, and lemon zest and stir well,
   until the greens are wilted, 3 to 4 minutes.  Drain the beans (most of the
   liquid will have been absorbed) from the cooking liquid with a slotted
   spoon and add them to the peppers and greens.  Warm through.  Season to
   taste with the salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
   
   Meantime, cook the pasta according to the package directions.  Drain and
   toss with the beans and vegetables.
