From EatingWell: July/August 2008 -- Bountiful summer vegetables - zucchini, summer squash, fresh tomatoes - are quickly sautéed with protein-rich white beans and topped with Parmesan for a hearty dish. This sauté is endlessly versatile and works well with eggplant, peppers or corn. Serve with: Brown rice or bulgur. (1 Carbohydrate Serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add zucchini, summer squash, oregano, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook, stirring once, until the vegetables are tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in beans, tomatoes and vinegar; increase heat to medium and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in Parmesan.
  5. Serve with: Brown rice or bulgur.
  6. TIP: While we love the convenience of canned beans, they tend to be high in sodium. Give them a good rinse before adding to a recipe to rid them of some of their sodium (up to 35 percent) or opt for low-sodium or no-salt-added varieties. Or, if you have the time, cook your own beans from scratch.

I made it just like the recipe said, and served it over brown Basmati rice. It was quick, easy and fabulous!
