White beans and tomatoes combine with the light flavors of white wine, sage, and thyme in a stew with a chili-like consistency. So easy and satisfying.

This was great served over Protein enriched thin spaghetti that had been seasoned with a little EVOO, butter,parsley & garlic,and black pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Will become a family standard based on taste, economy,and nutritional value. Read More

This gets three stars only because it was so easy to make and I had everything in the pantry. The taste is at the most two stars (this after using fresh sage) but it served its purpose as a quick dinner for one. Read More

Tasty stew with nice combination of herbs. Be prepared for major popping and splatters when you pour in the wine!! I recommend you have a lid handy to cover the pan to protect yourself!! Read More

Made this for lunch today as I had all the ingredients on hand. Substitued fresh sage and thyme for the dried because I had it available in my garden pots. Very tasty! I almost ate the whole thing myself. Will make again Read More

Very-very tasty stew! Great combination of herbs. I used garbanzos instead of white beans and it turned out wonderful. Read More

This recipe is quite good and is also cheap easy fast tasty and healthy - an all-around winner! It was a little salty even without any added salt so I might rinse the beans off next time to get rid of some of the salt. I agree with another reviewer that the mixture of herbs was strong but I liked it that way. I also used a ton of garlic. I thought about doubling the tomatoes because I really like tomatoes but I tasted the mixture after adding the beans and the balance of beans vs. tomatoes was perfect. I ate almost the whole thing myself! Read More

Delicious!!! One of the yummiest things I've ever made. I don't like meat and I wanted to make something yummy and vegetarian for 4 friends who practically live on steak. We all LOVED this. So easy to make too. Served with fresh breadrolls. Highly recommended:D Read More

This dish tastes absolutely fantastic! Only complaint that I have is that it doesn't feed four! I used a 19-oz can for both the beans and the tomatoes and it only fed me 3 times:( haha looks like I'll just haveto make it again! Thanks Read More
