    smellyvegetarian's Note:

    This is from eatingwell.com. My family just about licked the bottom of the skillet after this is gone, which isn't common with meatless entrees. The original recipe calls for "salad beans", which I couldn't find, so I am posting great northern instead. I have made this with a can of mixed pinto/white beans, which was very yummy. The original recipe doesn't call for it, but I highly recommend adding a splash of balsamic vinegar to the sauce. It just takes the flavor up one more notch, IMHO. Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put a large pot of water on to boil. Mash 1/2 cup beans in a small bowl with a fork.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, celery and salt; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add garlic and bay leaf; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add wine; increase heat to high and boil until most of the liquid evaporates, 3 to 4 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add tomatoes and their juices, 2 tablespoons parsley and the mashed beans. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar if you like. Bring to a lively simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 6 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the remaining whole beans; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes more.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, cook pasta in the boiling water until just tender, about 9 minutes or according to package directions. Drain.
    7. 7
      Divide the pasta among 4 bowls. Discard the bay leaf and top the pasta with the sauce. You can also just mix the pasta and sauce and divide into servings. Serve with remaining parmesan and parsley.

      The bay leaf adds so much flavor to this meatless sauce. The store did not have any whole wheat fettuccine, so I had to use regular. I was not sure if the beans were to be drained or not. But in step 4 it wants you to thicken the sauce. I could not see adding liquid back in at this point so I drained the beans. Made for Please Review My Recipe game 2010.

      This was pretty good considering it was bean pasta! I made this after seeing it in Eating Well. I have to confess I only used white beans as it was all I had on hand and I also didn't have any carrots. The sauce looked a little weird, but was much more appealing after topping it with parsley & cheese! Surprisingly good.
