What a savory, beautiful dish this is. This is dinner party worthy! I cooked the beans less than called for as I prefer them with a bit of bite left. The pine nuts are not mentioned past the title, so I toasted them and sprinkled them on the finished dish before serving. The sauce is divine! I'm already imagining it on some roasted beets.
