White Bean and Aromatic Vegetable Ragout

A great all-purpose bean dish that pairs well with so many things, especially when the weather turns cold. We served this under lamb shanks (click here to watch that clip), grilled chicken, or even a nice piece of fish. If you want to cook dried white beans from scratch go ahead, but I find the imported Italian white beans work wonderfully, and so much faster.

2 Jars White Beans (12 oz. each) Cannellini, or White Navy Beans
1 Onion
2 Carrots
2 Stalks Celery
1/3 cup Diced Tomato (fresh tomato, or any canned tomato product will work)
Olive Oil
Chicken Stock
Herb de Provence
Bay Leaf
3 Cloves Garlic
Black Pepper
1 Bunch Fresh Italian Parsley
