  • Add beans, broth, and sage to pan; with a potato masher, mash about one third of beans. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cook until sauce has thickened but is still soupy, about 10 minutes. Cool; transfer to a covered container, and refrigerate until ready to use, up to 2 days.

  • Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta 2 minutes less than package instructions suggest. Drain; rinse under cold water until cool.Transfer to a bowl, and toss with remaining tablespoon oil to coat. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use, up to overnight.

  • In a large (5-quart) saucepan over medium heat, bring sauce and lemon juice to a simmer. Stir in cream and Parmesan. Add pasta; cook, stirring, until heated through, 2 minutes. Serve sprinkled with parsley and more cheese, if desired.

Was very good but I found it too soupy. I would half the sauce next time but very yummy and easy.

This recipe is DELICIOUS! So warming and yummy! It's as satisfying as a bowl of shrimp fettuccine alfredo without all the calories and fat. It is great as a leftover too. We enjoyed it in our lunches the next day. Easy to make, simple ingredients. FIVE STARS!

I tossed some baby spinach into the sauce right before adding the hot pasta. Delicious!
