Ingredients
  1. 1/2 bunch of broccoli rabe (about 3/4 pound), stems removed
  2. 1 small onion, chopped
  3. 3 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 1 (14 ounce) can cannellini beans,drained and rinsed
  5. 1 cup panel bread crumbs
  6. 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  7. 1/2 tsp salt ( or to taste)
  8. 1/4 tsp black pepper
  9. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  10. Marinara sauce, for serving ( store bought or homemade)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Steam the broccoli rabe for about 5 minutes until slightly tender. Allow it to cool for a few minutes, and then place it into a bowl of your food processor. Add the onion, garlic, beans, pandora, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Pulse until the rabe is finely chopped and the beans are partially mashed, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. Shape the mixture into 2 inch balls ( you should get 20-24)
  4. Lightly coat a baking dish or large oven-safe skillet with olive oil. Place the meatballs in dish or skillet and brush with some additional olive oil
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes, rolling them around about every 10 minutes to get even browning all around
  6. Serve with marinara sauce
