probably canellini beans would make the dish more authentic. That or those Roman beans. We are going to try a lamb stew this week so I am into this dish for now.

Since Cannellini is the Italian name for white kidney beans - how could you get more authentic, JP?

FYI: "Roman" beans are "cranberry beans". Similar flavor to cannellini but different, can be used as a substitute, but not the same.

If you don't know beans about your beans - you might check out: http://www.foodsubs.com/Beans.html

Middie - I can't believe most of the FoodTV and PBS cooking shows today all revolved around soup! Now all I have to do is figure out which of the 12 versions of "Leek and Potato" I want to try! :roll:
