  • 1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 26 oz chopped tomatoes organic
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning salt-free dried herbs
  • 1 1/2 cups white beans
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley basil or spinach
  • salt to taste
  • Optional: add in 1-2 Tbsp capers or black olives for another layer of flavor.


  • Warm a large skillet over high heat.
  • Add the olive oil and garlic and saute for a minute.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add the tomatoes, nutritional yeast and dried herbs. Simmer on medium for three minutes.
  • Fold in the white beans and greens and salt to taste. Stir gently and simmer for another 3-5 minutes on medium. You want to cook the sauce until it thickens and the flavors develop. If the sauce gets too dry, reduce the heat and/or cover with a lid while simmering.
  • Serve over top pasta. Add vegan cheese and red pepper flakes over top.
