    Inge 1505's Note:

    Can be well prepared ahead or frozen.I usually serve them with polenta and a green salad, but it is good over brown rice or with crusty bread, too.A savory dish, make it spicier by adding some red pepper flakes.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cook bacon in oil over medium high heat until transparent, 1-2 minutes.
    2. 2
      Reduce heat to medium. Add onion, carrots, celery, parsley and rosemary and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add tomatoes, bay leaf and red pepper flakes if using. Cover, reduce heat to low and let simmer 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Rinse and drain beans and add to tomato sauce. Cook another 15-20 minutes without cover, until thickened to a sauce consistency.
    5. 5
      Taste with salt and pepper. Be careful with the salt, as the bacon is already salty.

      I was afraid that I was not going to like this as I am rather picky (yes I admit it). But it was SO good! I did add chicken broth to keep the moisture up and cooked it a bit longer This is definitely going to be in my dinner rotation.

      Mmmm! This is a great way to get in those beans we're all supposed to eat 'cuz they're so good for us, LOL! I used a can of italian-style tomatoes and 3 strips of bacon. So delicious! Although I minced the veggies, they weren't quite cooked yet by the time the mixture had reduced to a sauce-like consistency, so I think I'll saute them in a separate pan next time before adding them to the bacon. And there will definitely be a next time :)
