Also, all the fat comes from healthy olive oil and the beans. Even better, most if not all of the ingredients, with the exception of fresh parsley, you probably already have in your pantry!

I can’t take credit for this one, as this recipe comes from my man’s ex-wife and I can guarantee you are going to love it as much as us!
