20 mins
Serves 6

Swap cannellini beans for pasta, prepare them like baked ziti and, voila, you have a protein-packed, plant based meal everyone will love. So easy, a child could make it. So delicious and nutritious, you'll make it again and again. Serve with a baguette or garlic bread and watch it disappear.

  • Step 1

    Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Rinse beans in colander and drain well.

  • Step 2

    In an oven-safe skillet or dutch oven, bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer for about 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Add beans to soup. Cook about five minutes, then stir half of the mozzarella or fontina cheese and the parmesan cheese into the beans. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.

  • Step 4

    Transfer skillet to oven. Bake until cheese is melted about five minutes. Let cool for five minutes and then serve.
