    • 1 cup chopped onion
    • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 medium tomato, seeded, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon fresh basil (or 1 tsp. dried basil leaves)

    • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided

      FANTASTIC!! I did modify this quite a bit though - I am a vegan so I mixed nutritional yeast in with the mashed beans and I omitted the red pepper. SO good!!!

      This was FANTASTIC, Only change I made was using canellini beans in place of garbanzos. So fresh and tasty. I had to add a little salt and pepper for flavor.

      I made some minor changes, I didn't have a tomato so instead I used some pasta sauce...used chedder instead of parm. It was easy and DELICIOUS!
