Recipe by Vegetarian Network Austin
This dish was brought to our September 2007 potluck dinner by Ken Jaffe, our President. Several people requested the recipe, so we posted it here. NOTE: A member who made it said that she doubled the red pepper flakes, used 1 can of beans, used dried parsley, omitted the salt and pepper, and cooked it for an hour. Those changes are reflected in the recipe.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
- 2 zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch slices
- 2 lbs plum tomatoes, chopped
- 1⁄8-1⁄4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
- 2 cups cannellini beans (cooked or 1 can)
- 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley (1/4 cup chopped fresh or 1/8 cup dried)
- 1⁄4 cup dried basil
- salt, to taste (optional)
- fresh ground pepper, to taste (optional)
