If you first cook the pasta, and then use the same pot to cook the beans, you will only need one pot and a casserole dish to make this meal. To save time, cook the pasta and the beans in different pots at the same time, and use prepared pesto instead of fresh basil and Parmesan.

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water until done. Drain, and set aside. Meanwhile mince basil and garlic with Parmesan cheese. Transfer to a medium bowl, and mix with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Mix in ricotta.
  2. In a saucepan, cook onions with thyme and bay leaf in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Stir in beans and balsamic vinegar, and simmer for 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine beans, tomatoes, and pasta in a well oiled 2 quart casserole dish. Place spoonfuls of the ricotta mixture in the pasta and beans, and press down to cover. In a small bowl, moisten bread crumbs with 1 tablespoon olive oil, and sprinkle over casserole.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

My husband and I loved this! It's not too filling but very satisfying. I added some vegetables (zucchini and carrots) and cooked them with the onions and beans. I also added pieces of fresh mozzarella and it turned out great.

This was wonderful! I cut the basil amount in half, and added a little liquid into the simmering beans. The overall mixture of flavour and texture was hearty and enjoyable!!! Thanks for a GREAT recipe!

Hearty! I added veggie stock to the cheese mix to keep it from the dryness others had stated. Roasted some brussel sprouts since I had the oven on to go with it. Whole wheat pasta and lower fat cheese made it healthier.
