Italian-Style Kidney Beans

Can be well prepared ahead or frozen.I usually serve them with polenta and a green salad, but it is good over brown rice or with crusty bread, too.A savory dish, make it spicier by adding some red pepper flakes.

ingredients

directions

  • Cook bacon in oil over medium high heat until transparent, 1-2 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Add onion, carrots, celery, parsley and rosemary and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes, bay leaf and red pepper flakes if using. Cover, reduce heat to low and let simmer 10 minutes.
  • Rinse and drain beans and add to tomato sauce. Cook another 15-20 minutes without cover, until thickened to a sauce consistency.
  • Taste with salt and pepper. Be careful with the salt, as the bacon is already salty.

    I was afraid that I was not going to like this as I am rather picky (yes I admit it). But it was SO good! I did add chicken broth to keep the moisture up and cooked it a bit longer This is definitely going to be in my dinner rotation.

    Good recipe. Doubled and used dried beans in slow cooker.

    Mmmm! This is a great way to get in those beans we're all supposed to eat 'cuz they're so good for us, LOL! I used a can of italian-style tomatoes and 3 strips of bacon. So delicious! Although I minced the veggies, they weren't quite cooked yet by the time the mixture had reduced to a sauce-like consistency, so I think I'll saute them in a separate pan next time before adding them to the bacon. And there will definitely be a next time :)

    Wonderful! Very flavorful and filling, my husband and I will certainly be repeating this recipe. I served it over whole wheat pasta and it was great!
