Expert Tips

  • Toss together a Caesar salad, pick up some rolls and pick up cannoli from your favorite bakery.
  • Any type of canned beans, instead of the cannellini beans, will work in this recipe. You may want to experiment with garbanzo beans, butter beans, great northern beans, red beans or kidney beans.
  • For an extra-special touch, sprinkle each serving with chopped fresh basil and freshly shredded or shaved Parmesan cheese.
