This sauce was good, but it definitely needs some salt. It makes a lot of sauce (I halved the recipe and it made enough for at least 4 people). I think next time I would use half as much meat, as I like my pasta sauces a little saucier than this. I did really like the idea of adding the cannellini beans though.
