Very Nice dinner! I was looking for a different type of pasta sauce and this one caught my eye. I liked that the base of this pasta sauce consisted of beans......for the added protein and fiber benefit. It is however, in my opinion, best served immediately b/c it tends to thicken up a bit. I have made this twice now and will make it again. Thank You for sharing :)
