Spicy tomato beans with ‘Nduja. Super fast yet fancy looking and next-level delicious. Creamy butter beans coated in a velvety, spicy tomato sauce, a 20 minute midweek wonder that feels like a hug in a bowl. Serve with some crusty bread for a funky dinner.

We loved this recipe and will make it again! Prep did take longer than 5 minutes, however it was worth it and very easy.
