"My husband and I go through "healthnut" Phases but don't want to sacrifice taste. We both love this recipe and hope you do too. The white beans add an extra boost of fiber and protein. You can use a Whole wheat crust, like one on this website, and make it extra healthy and of course you can omit the butter. We do sometimes and it tastes just as good."
