Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk

  • 1 1/2 cups (about 6 oz.) cooked ham, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 can (15.5 oz.) cannellini (white kidney) beans, undrained
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • Ground black pepper (optional)

Directions

HEAT oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 to 2 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in flour.
