This dish works well with either fresh cannellini or cranberry beans. However, if fresh beans are not available, dried ones can be used instead. I like to serve these beans alongside some broiled sausages, with a roast pork or beef dish, or even with game. These stewed beans are also absolutely delicious with braised squid. This recipe can also be used to top crostini or bruschetta as an original version of beans on toast!
