(serving size: 3/4 cup)

The mild flavor of the beans plays off the pesto's pungent taste and adds a delicious creaminess.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350º. Place the drained beans in a medium-size shallow casserole or gratin dish. Add the pesto and stir well to coat all the beans. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Sprinkle Parmesan cheese evenly over the beans and place under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

Step 3

Pre-party prep: This can be prepared up to a day before. Assemble; cover tightly with foil. Bake, then add cheese, and broil at the party.

Step 4

How kids can help: Mix the beans and pesto, add the salt and the pepper, and sprinkle on the cheese.
