Fancy (But Easy) Rice & Beans Recipe!
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-8
  • Knorr Pasta & Rice Side dish
  • 2 cans of Butter Beans
  • 3 cups of sliced, fresh mozzarella
  • 1 pkg of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 jar of artichoke hearts cut in half
  • fresh rosemary
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • dinner rolls (optional)
  1. I first heated up water to make the Knorr Pasta & Rice side dish. Follow the instructions on the bag to cook it on your stove top.
  2. For the Sauteed Butter Beans, saute both drained cans on medium/high heat in olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper for about 5 mintues on each side until heated through and slighted golden brown. Keep an eye on these - if you cook them too long, then turn to mush.
  3. Fresh Mozzarella - slice in half and place on the serving dish. Sprinkle with a bit of dried basil.
  4. Roasted artichokes and cherry tomatoes -
  5. Place cherry tomatoes and artichoke hearts (sliced in half) on a baking dish. Drizzle some olive oil and season with rosemary, salt & pepper. Stir to coat. Roast at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve each warm, except the fresh mozzarella, and top with a rosemary infused dinner roll (that I picked up in my local bakery.)
