Begin boiling the water for the package of linguine by salting the water generously. The salted starchy water will be added later to the bean mixture according to desired thickness.
Drain and rinse both cans of cannellini beans and add all ingredients to the food processor except the olive oil which must be added in a slow stream after most of the ingredients have been thoroughly pureed. The mixture consistency can be adjusted by adding the pasta water gradually until desired thickness is achieved. Once the pasta is finished cooking, transfer the pasta to the serving bowl and lightly toss the bean topping with the pasta. Extra Virgin olive oil and parmesan cheese maybe added as condiments.
