I cooked these beans on top of the stove. I found that there was plenty of sauce so I served the it on a bed of spiral pasta with grilled ham steaks. This is a very nice way to cook beans. In fact I think that this recipe could be used as a main course with pasta and lots of cheese. A definite keeper. A tasty dish indeed. :-) Thank you...
