Recipe Ingredients for Bean Bolognese

14 ounce beans, tinned in water make sure you drain and rinse before use
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup white wine
14 ounce diced tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, divided
8 ounces pasta, whole-wheat fettucine
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Bean Bolognese

  1. Put a large pot of water on to boil. Mash 1/2 cup beans in a small bowl with a fork.

  2. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, celery and salt; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and bay leaf; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add wine; increase heat to high and boil until most of the liquid evaporates, 3 to 4 minutes. Add tomatoes and their juices, 2 tablespoons parsley and the mashed beans. Bring to a lively simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 6 minutes. Add the remaining whole beans; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes more.

  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in the boiling water until just tender, about 9 minutes or according to package directions. Drain.

  4. Divide the pasta among 4 bowls. Discard the bay leaf and top the pasta with the sauce; sprinkle with Parmesan and the remaining parsley.
