White Bean Ragout with Grilled Garlic Bread

1 medium onion, chopped
1/2  roasted red bell pepper, chopped (jarred is fine)
1 Half Stick LAND O LAKES® Butter
with Olive Oil & Sea Salt (1/4 cup) plus 2Tbsp. softened
Freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, 1 minced, 1 halved
1 tsp. tomato paste
4 to 6 - 1" thick slices grilled ciabatta
4 Tbsp. grated Parmesan
2 15-oz. cans canellini beans (rinsed and drained)
2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil

Heat LAND O LAKES® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add onions and roasted red pepper and season with salt and pepper.  Simmer, stirring often until vegetables are completely softened, about 15 minutes.  Add grated garlic and tomato paste and cook about 3 minutes.

 Spread  bread with softened  LAND O LAKES® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt and grill until golden and slightly charred.  Rub bread slices with cut sides of garlic clove. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  Add beans and  2 cups broth to skillet and bring to a boil.  Simmer until liquid is slightly thickened, 5-10  minutes.  Add tomatoes and simmer until tomatoes are tender, 3-4 minutes.  Stir in 2 Tbsp. Parmesan, season to taste.

Divide bread among bowls.  Top with bean mixture and broth.  Garnish with Parmesan and fresh basil.

This makes a hearty main dish.  Serve warm or at room temperature for a great simple weeknight summer meal.  Be sure to add enough broth as the bread soaks up those delicious juices.
The cherry tomatoes make this fast, easy and fresh.

  1. Hi Patti! That garlic bread looks so good I could eat it for breakfast! LOL I had a recipe for something similar to the white bean ragu a long time ago and have no idea where it is now, but I'll be trying this one for sure. Thanks! ~Mary

  2. Sounds like a nice, easy summer dinner Patti! The new butter is a good idea, bet it's great with pasta:@)

  3. Looks so good! I've been looking for a good white bean recipe. This one will be great with the fresh summer tomatoes.

  4. This looks absolutely amazing! I love the colors and tomatoes!

  5. I'I'I'm drooling! This reminds me of yummy broth you have left over when you're done eating mussels and you must have crusty bread to soak it all up. I love beans and tomatoes and will definitely be trying this recipe.

  6. What a beautiful and light dish that is perfect for Summer! I am honored that you shared it with us during #sundaysupper!

  7. I am drooling reading the recipe, Patti. Will try to make it soon myself!!

  8. Oh my gosh this looks so amazing. I am completely in love with this dish. So pretty and hearty at the same time.

  9. Aww, this takes me back to France, in a good way!

  10. Spectacular dish, simple and not at all fussy, but satisfying and oh so delicious. I knew when I saw it in Bon Appetit that I would have to make it as well. But I didn't see any credit though to the magazine; even with your substitutions you should properly credit the original. It's only fair.

    1. Thank you! With all the changes we had to make I did neglect to credit the magazine. Updated with the addition.

  11. Patti, your ragu looks wonderful and makes for a fabulous meat-free meal. I'll have to give this a try. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  14. This looks incredibly delicious! I wish all my kids at beans though. Would make a fabulous appetizer, too!

  15. This looks so good! My favorite summer dish using butter is simply sauteeing garden veggies in it. :) Thank you.
