OMG, Dee - this is a superb dish! DH loves cannellini beans, but I'm not a fan. This recipe changed my mind. I followed the recipe exactly, except for using three large cloves of garlic instead of one. It could have used a fourth, but we're just geared that way. LOL. This one's going straight into my Best of 2021 file. Thanks for sharing this keeper of a dish!!!
