We are always on the look out for meals we like that are a little lighter & a little healthier. Loving to eat as much as we do can add up! Matt was browsing through channels the other day & stopped on Healthy Appetite with Ellie Kreiger on the Food Network. This is not a show he usually likes but the recipe for Penne with Roasted Tomatoes, Garlic and White Beans caught his attention because of our current love of white beans. He cooked it for me last night.
The tomatoes & garlic roast for 45 minutes
then the garlic gets squeezed out of its paper & mashed
The hot cooked pasta gets drained over the beans which heats the beans for the final dish.
Everything gets mixed together with a little parmesean on top & a drizzle of olive oil. Yum! Ok, healthy was good.
The recipe also called for fresh basil which would have given a lovely fresh flavor but Safeway only had bulk packages of basil this week which would have gone to wasate for us.
