Cheesy White-Bean Béchamel Sauce

Cheesy White-Bean Béchamel Sauce

I had just enough Red Sauce and Tofu Ricotta Filling left over for a personal sized lasagna and I also had cooked some Baby Lima Beans this weekend that I had made Escarole & Beans with hanging out in my fridge so I thought about experimenting with a white cheese sauce. White beans have such great creamy texture that it made making this delicious Béchamel style sauce easy and delicious to boot. I layered it in and topped it with sautéed kale and the whole beautiful party is in the oven. This sauce on its own over a bowl of pasta or noodles would be an exceptionally satisfying and protein filled dish.
