1 (15oz) can Mrs. Grimes® Navy Beans or Mrs. Grimes® Great Northern Beans (drained, rinsed)
1 3/4 cups milk
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dry ground mustard

6oz sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (1 1/2 cups)

Preparation:

Cook pasta as directed on package. Drain. Meanwhile, in food processor, combine beans and 1/4 cup of the milk. Cover; process 30 to 60 seconds or until completely smooth. In large saucepan, mix pureed beans, remaining milk, onion powder, mustard, salt and pepper with wire whisk. Cook until mixture starts to boil, stirring frequently.
