Summer Squash & White Bean Sauté

Summer Squash & White Bean Sauté

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
1 medium zucchini
1 medium yellow summer squash
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 15- or 19-ounce can cannelloni or great northern beans
2 medium tomatoes
1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
1/3 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add zucchini, summer squash, oregano, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook, stirring once, until the vegetables are tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.

Stir in beans, tomatoes and vinegar; increase heat to medium and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in Parmesan.

Tip: While we love the convenience of canned beans, they tend to be high in sodium. Give them a good rinse before adding to a recipe to rid them of some of their sodium (up to 35 percent) or opt for low-sodium or no-salt-added varieties.
