  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Garlic Cloves (thinly sliced)
  • 4 Plum Tomatoes (ripe and thinly sliced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salit
  • 1 15-ounce can Cannellini Beans (no salt added, rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 pound Small Pattypans (cut into wedges)
  • 8 Mini Bell Peppers (quartered cut lengthwise)


In a medium-sized pan over medium heat, heat one (1) tablespoon of olive oil until shimmering. Sauté the garlic cloves until lightly browned (1 – 2 minutes). Stir in tomato and salt. Simmer until thickened (7 – 10 minutes). Stir in cannellini beans and heat through (1 – 2 minutes). 

In a large-sized pan over medium-high heat, heat the remaining one (1) tablespoon of olive oil until shimmering. Sauté the pattypans until lightly tender-crisp (2 – 3 minutes). Remove pattypans from the pan. Add the bell peppers to the pan and sauté until charred in spots (3 -5 minutes).

Spoon the cannellini beans into two (2) bowls. Top with the pattypans and bell peppers.
