I make a few alterations when I cook this recipe- namely making a spice sachet from cotton twine and cheesecloth for the herbs I don't have fresh. If I have sauce made from earlier in the week, I will use it instead of making a new batch. I omit the bacon and replace the white beans for my all time favorite beans...
AHHHH! An absolute must for all you foodies: Christmas Lima Beans. Creamy, chestnut-y, fabulous. I order them yearly here. What a treat!
Oooh, I'm rambling a bit. One last bit: I treat this as a main dish and serve it over polenta (recipe I use). I use the leftover bean broth as the water in the recipe!
