We absolutely loved this dish! It made way more than I thought, so I'm looking forward to having leftovers tonight for supper. I'm not sure what butter beans are, so I used romano beans, but other than that, I followed the recipe exact. It thickened up very nice with time. I will definately make this recipe again.
