This recipe originally called for adzuki beans, but as those are extremely hard to find state-side, I use whatever type of beans I have on hand. I like garbanzos and cannellini best, but kidneys and pintos work well also. Adjust the pepper flakes to your personal taste. I usually use around 3/4 tsp. depending on how I am feeling while cooking. If you don't have Asiago cheese on hand, Parmesan and Mozzarella will work just as well. This can also be made vegan by omitting the cheese or substituting soy cheese. This can be used as a main dish for four or a side dish for eight.
