  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 15-ounce can white kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • Cooking Directions

    Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

    While the pasta cooks, heat olive oil and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until garlic is fragrant. Add beans and tomato; reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, about 5-7 minutes.

    Drain pasta, and add to bean mixture. Add pesto; toss to combine. Divide evenly among 4 serving dishes. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese.
