Baked White Bean Pasta

Baked White Bean Pasta

Fall is coming which also means I crave more baked meals that fill my house with delicious smells. This will certainly do just that. I love this recipe because it’s really easy to make gluten-free and use as meal prep. It is also really easy to double or even triple the recipe for last gatherings. Also there is a hidden vegetable now one will ever notice! Recipe video at the end of this post!

  9. Generously cover the top in the vegan parm

  10. Place in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until the top has become golden brown and the edges have crispened up. If the top starts to burn, place tin foil on top and continue to bake
