    John J. O'Sullivan?'s Note:

    Although the name of this recipe says it's for Tuesdays, I generally make this recipe on Fridays, when Catholic practise says flesh meat is verboten. It's got a wonderful flavour, and works well with a Mexican dish any day of the week. The recipe calls for Great Northern or Navy beans, but I prefer Goya Small White Beans. Different beans for different folks, I suppose. (I got this recipe from Anne Byrn's "Dinner Doctor" book. I don't think she's Catholic, because the large amount of cassaroles seems to say that she's Lutheran. =D)

      This has been a favorite of mine for a couple of yrs now. I got it from the same book! I put a scoop of cooked spinach in the middle of the bowl. Add a slice of cornbread on the side and you've got a great meal!

      Much better than I thought they would be and simple and cheap, even very healthy. I think they will be good leftover and I will certainly make them again. A little soupy for us and I took them out of the liquid with a strainer spoon, they didn't reduce at all, even despite cooking much longer. It didn't matter, as long as you drain off some of the liquid. Would be good with herbes de provence or some rosemary in them.
