This is one of my favorites! I made it quite often. Even my meat and potatoes husband likes it!

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.

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