Delicious Cannellini Beans

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MrsMM

This is the most affordable and tastiest dish. It could be a good side dish maybe with an Italian-inspired fish, but I like a bowlful of it as a meal itself. Warm, hearty and flavorful- did I mention cheap and easy too? :)

I've got a confession to make...I love beans! They're just so inexpensive and so tasty! This recipe is simple, but the flavor is absolutely amazing! The minced garlic blends with the creamy sauce from the beans and it's just heavenly! I ate the beans by themselves the first night for dinner, and over brown rice for lunch the next day. Both ways were great! Thanks, MrsMM!
