Creamy Stewed White Beans with Basil Pesto make a delicious and hearty vegetarian meal or side dish.

I love the combination of white beans and tomatoes, so when you throw some basil pesto into the mix and dinner is ready in under 15 minutes, I'm in. This dish is so incredibly simple to make and tastes out of this world. You can adapt it any way you like to make it work for you. Add some balsamic vinegar at the end, top it with some Parmesan cheese, throw in some spinach for greens, or even cook some eggs in the mixture like a shakshuka. So easy, so comforting, and so good.
