since steve has joined a monday night bowling league and andrew has a class that evening, i'm using mondays as a day to either go meatless or try out some egg dishes. this week i tried this recipe. i made a couple modifications-i roasted the tomatoes and garlic the day before, and on monday i heated up the beans (undrained) along with the tomatoes and garlic and let it reduce a bit so that the pasta had a little sauce. also, i used rigatoni instead of penne. i love beans, and this was a great way to incorporate a high fiber, low fat protein into a meal. i'm definitely going to make this again, and it could be accompanied with italian sausage, or roasted chicken if you're trying to satisfy the meat eaters in your family.
