Quick Italian Veggie Dinner from @TinaKashian1 #giveaway


Hello from TINA KASHIAN! I’m a fan of quick and healthy weeknight meals. With two busy girls, a day job, and writing at night, I’m a mom on the run. I know how tempting it is to swing by the Chick-fil-A drive through on the way home from swim practice. Cooking healthy is a challenge, and I’ve been flipping through cookbooks and searching online for healthy dishes that don’t take hours in the kitchen. I’m happy to share a quick Italian vegetable dinner that my family enjoyed.



1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1 can (15 oz) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

1 can stewed tomatoes, undrained

1 cup chicken broth

¾ cup uncooked long grain rice

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

1 cup marinara sauce

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Minced fresh basil
