I have to admit I was a little skeptical of how the finished product would taste because of so few ingredients, but it turned out great! The only issue I have is the stated amounts for the tomato sauce and the beans are a little odd. 2 cups of sauce is slightly more than what comes in a standard can of tomato sauce, so I added in some water to make up the difference. My bigger issue was the 24 oz of prepared beans. A standard can of beans is 15oz, and if you drain and rinse them, they are about 8oz. So are we to measure 1.5 cans undrained? Or 3 cans drained? Since the recipe was a little vague, I just threw in 2 cans of rinsed beans and that seemed to be a good consistency. Instead of using 1 tbsp of basil (because this seemed like a lot to me), I used 1 tsp. This was really tasty with freshly grated parmesan on top.
