Baked White Bean Cakes

3 cups cooked white beans (or canned)
2 eggs
1/4 cup grate Parmesan
2 Tbs. cup olive oil
1/4 cup minced red onion
2 Tbs. minced garlic
2 tsp. minced fresh rosemary or 1 tsp. dried
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
salt and pepper
Tomato sauce (fresh or jarred spaghetti sauce) and pine nuts to go on top

Pre-heat oven to 375 and grease a baking sheet.
Put the beans in a large bowl and mash with a fork.
Add the eggs and whisk with a fork.
Cook the onion and garlic in the olive oil until soft and golden. Stir in the rosemary and then set aside to cool a bit.
Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper into the beans. Add the onion/garlic mixture. Stir until combined. It should be the consistency of thick cookie dough.
Form the dough into 8 cakes on the prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes, until golden and crisp.
Top cakes with tomato sauce and toasted pine nuts.
