Ingredients

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, halved and sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced

1 medium yellow summer squash, halved lengthwise and sliced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano, or 1 teaspoon dried

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 15 or 19 ounce can cannellini or great northern beans, rinsed

2 medium tomatoes, chopped

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1/3 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add zucchini, summer squash, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to low, cook and cover, stirring once, until the vegetables are tender-crips, 3-5 minutes.

Stir in beans, tomatoes and vinegar; increase heat to medium and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan.

Tips & Notes: Give canned beans a good rinse before adding to a recipe to rid them of some of their sodium (up to 35 percent) or opt for low sodium or no-salt-added varieties. (These recipes are analyzed with rinsed, regular canned beans.) Or, if you have the time, cook your own beans from scratch.
