Bean Bolognese

December 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (225 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.

This is delicious! One of the best recipes ever. I was a little skeptical because of the veggies that go in the pasta because I didn't think they would mix well. This was seriously so good, my fiancee ate the sauce without the pasta and loved it. I used vegetable fettuccine because I don't like the flavor of wheat. I also didn't include the celery because I don't like it. Followed everything else the same as the recipe. HIGHLY recommended. I plan on making it for my family when they come over.

This was AMAZING!! and so affordable!!

I made a few alterations:

I used a dry rose wine (its all I had)
I used cannelini beans
I used a bit of red pepper flakes
I used a whole wheat penne rigate
I used no salt added diced tomatoes
I added about a half a cup of the pasta cooking water to the sauce
Oh and I added some extra parmesan reggiano into the pasta once I mixed it all together, and then more on top! :)

I highly recommend this recipe!!

Wonderful recipe! I used white beans and regular spaghetti (instead of whole wheat). It filled my husband and me up with out being heavy. Very easy to make and I had everything in my pantry! I'm going to vary this with different beans and such. Black beans and cilantro maybe instead of white beans and parsley, for example.

I love this this dish! It satisfies my meaty-pasta craving like no other healthy meal can.
