Skillet White Beans, Tomatoes, Spinach and Fettucini

Last night I made an easy pasta recipe from  The dish is reminiscent of minestrone with the tomatoes, basil, and white beans.  It tastes great and comes together quickly.
Here is the version I made:

2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
1 can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 package fresh baby spinach
dash red pepper flakes
dash basil
dash oregano
ground black pepper to taste
12 oz box whole wheat fettucini
6 Tab grated Parmesan

Cook pasta according to package directions and drain.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium high.  Saute garlic 1 minute.  Stir in tomatoes and beans and bring to a boil. 
Top with spinach and cover with lid.  Reduce to a simmer and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.   Stir in spices.  Stir sauce into pasta and sprinkle with cheese.
