It's Not Just Popcorn!

Tuscan-Style Cannellini Beans

on May 24, 2010

This dish is a very popular dish in most restaurants in Tuscany or any Italian restaurant here in the United States. It’s simple and delicious. It’s got lots of fiber too which we all need these days. This version is also much lower in calories than the version in restaurants. I made it the other day and it was really good.

INGREDIENTS:

4 teaspoons olive oil

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh sage or ½ teaspoon dried

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary or ½ teaspoon dried

1 cup canned diced tomatoes (I used the Fire Roasted ones)

1 (16 ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

¼ teaspoon salt

black pepper to taste

1 tablespoon finely chopped Italian parsley

1 teaspoon red-wine vinegar

Parmesan or pecorino cheese for topping, if desired


DIRECTIONS:

1. In a medium saucepan heath the oil over medium-low heat. Saute the garlic, sage and rosemary until the garlic turns pale gold, about 5 minutes.

2. Add the tomatoes; raise the heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally 5 minutes longer.

3. Add the bean, salt and pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley and vinegar. Top with parmesan cheese if desired.
