Recipe Ingredients for Cheesy White Bean Sauce (for Pasta)

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1 chopped jalapeno or other hot pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup water
2 cube Vegetable Bouillon
2 cups cooked white beans (such as Great Northern) or one 15-ounce can, drained and mashed*
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese

Recipe Directions for Cheesy White Bean Sauce (for Pasta)

  1. In a medium-large stock pot over medium heat, saute onion, cayenne or pepper, and black pepper in butter, until onion is soft. Add garlic and stir. Add the flour and stir to coat, until flour is bubbly.

  2. Add the milk, water, and chicken base while whisking briskly. Continue to whisk and heat until mixture bubbles and thickens slightly.

  3. Reduce heat and stir in beans, heating through. (See additional notes about blending the sauce for a smooth sauce.) Add cheese and stir until melted. Add salt to taste (we like about 1 teaspoon, but you may need less, especially if you started with canned beans!).

  4. Serve hot sauce over freshly cooked pasta. Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese or fresh parsley for garnish, if desired.
