    Like another reviewer, I used Great Northern beans and no parsley. It was very tasty and easy to make! I used store bought pesto.

    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.

    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 recipe #348260. tagged in 123.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
