    yum. i make this also but i do add some white wine (you can certainly use pasta water or chix broth) as the beans and pasta suck up the sauce and it becomes quite dry...otherwise, we love this! i also do it with chick peas...super yummy! i do also sautee an onion and some crshd red ppr and lots of garlic to add to it....and, sometimes we do it w/ whole wheat pasta to make it more nutritous!
