So full of flavor I just love the herbs. I saved the Basil for the end and tossed in just before serving. Giving it a fresh crisp taste. besides the 2 cloves of garlic I added 2 cloves roasted garlic. Added 1/2 cup diced red onions used a mixture of beans, lots of pepper and didn`t need the salt! Keeper!
