Galloping Garlic Pasta and White Beans February 24, 2020 00:00

Pasta and beans are a classic combination and are delicious together. We make ours starting with dry beans in our instant pot but you can also use canned beans. Galloping garlic pasta and white beans comes together in about 20 minutes with canned beans, 45 minutes with dry beans in an instant pot or you can set it to cook all day in a slow cooker just boil your cannelini beans for 10 minutes before placing in slow cooker. 

Galloping Garlic seasoning blend with pasta and cannelini beans


3 cups chicken broth

1 1/2 cups cooked cannelini beans (1 can of beans)

1 1/2 cups dry pasta

1 tablespoon Galloping Garlic seasoning blend

1/2 cup white wine

1 tsp white wine vinegar

2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil. You can change this to 4 tablespoons of butter or 4 tablespoons of olive oil.

1 lb broccoli


1. Melt butter in small pot. Add Galloping Garlic seasoning blend, vinegar and white wine. Simmer while pasta and beans cook.

2. If using canned beans drain and rinse thoroughly. Add drained rinsed beans and 3 cups chicken broth to medium pot and bring to low boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add pasta and continue to simmer for 5 - 10 minutes depending on size of pasta. This recipe works best with small pasta such as shells. Add broccoli and continue cooking for 5 minutes. 

3. When pasta is done to desired firmness, add melted butter sauce.
