This was very fast and easy to make. I sauteed a chopped shallot instead of the onion and used 3 garlic cloves. Didn't have any parsley. I toasted some crusty bread and then slathered the bean mix on top of it and ate it as an open-faced sandwich.

I made these with what I had on had, which was Great Northern beans and no parsley. In a word: fabulous. Thank you!

Great cannellini recipe. I used my frozen home grown cannellini's from last summer's garden and served it cold for lunch. Nice blend of flavors, love pesto and garlic and beans. I added the leftovers to Italian Sausage Soup. tagged in 123.
