The beans were very good. They were just a little sweet, not too much. I'm always on the look-out to use cannellini beans, and will certainly be making these again. I served them for dinner, not breakfast, with some lamb chops and cabbage. Both hubby and I enjoyed them a lot. (I used roasted canned tomatoes - yummm.) Thanks for posting.
