Servings: 4 servings
- 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.
