Our version of pasta and cannellini beans is thick, like a stew. To thin it, use a little extra broth.

a m a z i n g, I cook alot and this just hit the spot. Filling, we went back for seconds and had some country rolls with it. I did double up the salt and pepper, I used a Gruyère rhin and worked perfectly. Yummy

I doubled the recipe so that I would have plenty to freeze in containers to take to work for lunch. I used only one parm rind. The taste was excellent! Even better that it's under 6 grams of fat per serving!
