Pasta with White Beans, Broccolini, and Lemon

This dish was easy to make, but I thought it was a little bland. Not sure what it needed, maybe some grated Parmesan?

Pasta with White Beans, Broccolini, and Lemon
(can’t remember which magazine this came from!)

serves 6

Ingredients:

1 lb dry whole-wheat chiocciole (I used a different pasta)
2 bunches broccolini, chopped
1 can white beans (15 oz.), rinsed and drained
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 tsp red chili flakes (I omitted)

Directions:

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions. Add broccolini during the last 2 minutes; drain pasta and broccolini together.
2. Toss with white beans, olive oil, and lemon juice and zest. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and salt to taste.
