  • 1 Red onion; very finely chop

Stir in the white beans and cook for 1 minute. Add
the stock or bean liquid, half the parsley, pepper

be highly seasoned. Simmer until the beans are quite
soft, about 20 miu=nutes. Coarsely mash the beans
with a fork. Cook the spaghetti in a large pot in 4

large shallow bowl and mix well. Sprinkle spaghetti
with the remaining parsley and serve at once with
freshly grated cheese on top.
