Penne With Cannellini Beans

Penne With Cannellini Beans created by Kree6528

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.

    Quick, and I used my homemade roasted tomatoes. The 4 year-old gobbled it up.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. It was very afforable and easy to make. The calories are low which is a plus. I used whole wheat penne and it was delicious. My husband added Italian sausage to his plate and he said that was really good as well if you are not concerned about the calories.

    Very quick and easy - it is the perfect recipe to use if you're in a hurry and/or too exhausted to deal with several ingredients. I used frozen spinach instead of fresh. If I made the recipe again I would add chopped onion and some fresh garlic (as so many have suggested). I did add garlic powder, and it tasted fine.

    This was very good for how easy it was. I did chop a medium onion and sauteed it with about 2 tsp. of minced garlic before adding the tomatoes and beans. I also added 1 tsp dried basil. I made french bread to go with this. It was an easy weeknight dinner! My husband ate it fine, but he's not a huge vegetarian meal fan, so I'd classify it as "girl food" in our home. I'm definitely keeping this recipe, because I almost always have this stuff on hand. Thanks!

    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.<br/>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.
