Reviews forPenne with Tomatoes & White Beans
"This was amazing! I think this is going to be a weekly dish during the summer. This type of pasta dish would be great with a variety of substitutions. I used cannellini beans, but I would even use chick peas. Any type of marinated olive too."
"Very good.."must have salt and bait of cayenne kick.Do not overlook the pasta..must add a little liquid to moisten."
"This looks delicious! I don't have many penne recipes, so thank you so much for this. :D"
"FANTASTIC! My other half is a meat lover but even he told me to make this again."
"This is a great dish! My husband and I really enjoyed it. As "tracyosborn" I also made small changes to accommodate weight watches. I will definitely make this again. It's a keeper."
"This is so good! We have made it two times since the Simple and Delicious magazine arrived a couple of weeks ago. Two meals for the two of us, extra points! Four servings is right for this recipe."
"Love, love, love this!I made some changes, small changes, to accomodate weight watchers. This is a great dish to try that with. I used crushed tomatoes instead of diced, I used whole wheat penne pasta, 1 tsp of olive oil and I only used one tablespoon of parmesan cheese on my single portion. This was delicious! This was filling! And this was a total do-over!"
