INGREDIENTS3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juices
2 (15-ounce) cans cannellini beans, rinsed, drained
2 ounces prosciutto, coarsely chopped (I used regular bacon)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 cups arugula or mixed baby greens
1) Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the sage and thyme. Add the tomatoes. Increase the heat to medium-high and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the beans.
2) Simmer until the tomatoes are tender and the juices evaporate by half, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in the prosciutto (or bacon), being careful not to overcook it. Season the beans, to taste, with salt and pepper.
3) Arrange the arugula or mixed baby greens over a platter. Spoon the beans over the greens and serve.
