Pasta with White Beans and Garlic

Dish Type: Pasta, Risotto and Polenta


  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 15oz can White Beans
  • Juice of half a Lemon
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Oregano
  • ½ tsp Dried Basil
  • 12oz Dried Linguine
  • 3 tablespoons Fresh Parsley, minced


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta according to package directions, reserving about half a cup of pasta water when it’s done. While the pasta cooks, heat the oil over medium heat. Saute the garlic for just a few seconds (don’t let it burn), then add beans, lemon juice, oregano, and basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until heated through. Mash a few of the beans, add reserved pasta water, and mix to form the sauce. Toss in pasta and add parsley.
