Really good pasta sauce. Good taste and texture.

Fiber-rich beans stand in for the beef and pork in this surprisingly rich-tasting vegetarian take on pasta Bolognese. Without the meat, the dish has only a third of the fat and 80 percent less saturated fat. To make the perfect meal, serve with a peppery arugula salad and warm, crusty Italian bread.

As a pasta-loving vegetarian, this is the perfect meal for me. Came out great with white and pink kidney beans.
I would like to note, though, that it's difficult to find canned diced tomatoes without tons of added salt, which is gross. I left out the salt called for in the recipe, and the dish did not suffer for it.
Surprisingly good! I'm not a huge bean fan, but my family is trying to eat healthier so I tried this recipe. It was delicious, both my husband, a meat & potato guy, and my 10 year old loved it! Definitely adding to the rotation. I did add 1/4 - 1/3 c of tomato sauce to the sauce & it was perfect!
It was a really delicious meal! As a vegetarian, my boyfriend and I are finding it a little difficult to cook meals that we both enjoy. This used a lot of ingredients we already had and it was fairly easy to make. Excited about the leftovers and will definitely make it again!
I even blogged about it: http://larisas365.wordpress.com/2010/01/05/bean-bolongese-1-5-10/
I just made this and I used fire roasted diced tomatoes - It is a keeper, I will make it again and again
