Recipe Ingredients for Pesto-Infused White Bean and Sun-Dried Tomato Stew

1 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
3 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
1/4 c sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
30 oz navy beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 c vegetable stock
1/4 c pesto

Recipe Directions for Pesto-Infused White Bean and Sun-Dried Tomato Stew

  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

  2. To peel the tomatoes, remove the tomato stem and cut an 'X' in the bottom. Drop each tomato in boiling water for a few seconds, followed by a cold water bath. The skin will peel easily after doing this.

  3. Transfer the onion to a 4-qt slow cooker. Add the bell pepper, both kinds of tomatoes, the beans, and stock; season with salt and pepper, cover, and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

  4. Just before serving, stir in the pesto. Taste to adjust the seasonings. Serve over pasta.
