- BRING a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta following package directions, reserving 1 cup pasta water.
- HEAT 1/4 cup oil in a large frying pan over medium. Add bread crumbs and 1/2 tsp salt and cook, stirring often, until golden, about 4 min. Stir in parsley and garlic, then transfer to a bowl, scraping pan well.
- HEAT remaining 2 tbsp oil in the same pan over medium. Add onion, remaining ½ tsp salt and pepper and cook until softened, about 6 min. Add tomatoes and cook until softened, about 8 min.
- ADD pasta, beans and pasta water, tossing until well coated. Divide among plates, then sprinkle generously with bread crumbs.
Kitchen Tip: Stir panko often to prevent scorching, and remove all crumbs before cooking the onions.
