    Savoy Cabbage with Lardons and Cannellini Beans

    Bacon lardons have a sweet and salty flavour that contrasts brilliantly with savoy cabbage and tender cannellini beans. A creamy topping finishes off this fast one-dish supper.

    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    • 140g pack Waitrose Danish Smoked Lardons
    • ½ medium savoy cabbage, washed
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 150ml white wine
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 410g can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
    • 6 sage leaves, coarsely chopped
    • 142ml carton double cream
    • 25g Parmesan, grated

    4. Scatter the cannellini beans and sage over the cabbage mixture. Pour in the cream and top with the grated Parmesan. Return to the oven for a final 10-12 minutes, until bubbling hot and golden brown. Serve with warm crusty bread.

    Cook's tips

    Adding wet cabbage leaves to the roasting pan helps the cooking process - the water on the leaves turns to steam in the hot oven.
