Reviews for White Beans with Rigatoni
"I've made this recipe several times. I use my home-canned tomatoes and frozen kale from my garden - Since the kale is being cooked, the frozen greens work fine."
"I would definitely make this again. It was a nice hearty meatless meal with excellent flavor. About the only things I changed were to use gluten-free pasta (I used brown rice rotini) and to use more kale than the recipe called for. I think I used about 4 cups, and even more kale wouldn't hurt. I didn't have fresh sage, so used dry instead, but only two teaspoons."
