Bean Bolognese

December 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (226 votes)

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.

It came out great an alternative to a meaty meal. The guest were overpowered by the white wine though. And next time I will use the suggestion of adding tomato sauce.

Just made it tonight. Great taste and easy. I don't like celery so I used bell pepper.

YUM! I made with garbanzo beans, and used 2 tsp oil instead of 2 tbsp. A very filling alternative to a meat-based meal.

The beans give this dish a very meaty texture. A great veg meal!
