Mmmmmmm...I really enjoyed the onions and tomatoes in this dish. It gave the beans some pizzazz. The slight tanginess from the vinegar really works in this dish also. I think next time I make this, I am going to add some crumbled up bacon. Made for ZWT5.

Just the right extra flavor for an old standby. We really enjoyed the addition of the vinegar and parsley. (I thought there was way too much parsley when I added it, but it cooked up just right.) The serving size may be a little large for a side - we got four comfortable lunches of just this dish, no main course.
