Pasta with Tomatoes and White Beans

This is a quick but yet very satisfying recipe. Great dish to serve now that the weather is warmer, or hot if you are in Texas. If you think you need some meat added, sausage would be nice.

I love the combination of the beans and pasta. I've read a lot of vegetarianism and bean/starch is the healthiest and most complete protein. I'll try this lovely recipe for my vegetarian hubby. Thanks for sharing.
