    Ms*Bindy's Note:

    This is a quick, 5 ingredient recipe. It comes from Light and Tasty. You should definitely be using the Italian-style diced tomatoes that come already seasoned with herbs for flavor. If you use plain diced tomatoes, just add some herbs to your liking when putting this recipe together.

      I googled cannelini bean recipe and this is one of the ones that popped up. You see, I'm on a very tight budget right now and really don't have much; cannelini beans, pasta, diced tomatoes and Spinach is what I did have, yay! It worked out splendidly except I added Italian seasoning since I had plain diced tomatoes as well as powdered garlic and forgot about the spinach and added it in later. I don't have Romano cheese so at first I used mozzarella, for leftovers I used a mixture of cheeses. It was really good, simple and very affordable.
      For those who say it didn't taste that great, sure it was a bit plain and if I had been thinking more I would've added some garlic and I'm sure onion would be awesome in it too or mushrooms for that matter, but even as simple as I made it was great, and healthy.

      We enjoyed this recipe very much, especially with it being so simple. I did add onions, mushrooms,
      and extra garlic & basil. Yum!

      This was a good jumping-off point for a last-minute dinner. I mean, it was either find something quick, or make mac-n-cheese. Good inspiration using ingredients I had on hand. I used only one can of Italian style stewed tomatoes which I diced up, subbed garbanzo beans, sauteed onion and garlic, and added a can of artichoke hearts which I quartered. We are by no means a vegetarian family, but DH and I had no complaints about the absent meat. The beans and whole-wheat penne contributed a lot of substance to make up for it. Thanks!
