2 1/2 – 3 pounds plum tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 cup fresh basil, cut into slivers, reserving 1 tablespoon for garnish
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1 (15 ounce) can Great Northern white beans, rinsed and drained
8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese cut into 1/2-inch cubes*
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Honey Flavors and Colors
Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.
Set pan over a medium heat. Add beans and cook stirring occasionally until mixture is warm, about 5 minutes.
Stir in mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Heat until cheese starts to melt into strings, about 5 minutes.
To serve, divide stew between four bowls and sprinkle with reserved basil.
*Check your deli department for fresh mozzarella, which is soft and moist. It will melt more quickly than regular mozzarella.
