This Cheesy White Bean Tomato Bake ALL comes together in one skillet and makes the perfect appetizer, side dish OR even a complete meal (which is how I love it!). It’s cheesy and delicious and SO FILLING!


Units Scale
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup of tomato paste
  • 2(15-ounce) cans white beans (any white beans will work!), drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup of boiling water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 475 degrees F.
  2. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add in the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Mix in the tomato paste, continuing to stir often, and cook for 1 more minute.
  3. Add in the beans, boiling water, and a good pinch of salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Stir until fully combined and the beans are covered in the tomato paste.
  4. Sprinkle on the cheese so that it evenly covers the top of the skillet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted and starting to crisp around the edges. If you’re REALLY a fan of crispy cheese, I highly recommend running your broiler for a couple minutes. Make sure to watch it closely so it doesn’t burn!
  5. Serve with toasted bread or chips/ crackers and ENJOY!
