I made this last night because it seemed like the perfect dish on a snowy day. My husband liked it but didn't rave. I loved it. My husband likes mashed potatoes with this type of dinner so I did that but I was happy to eat it with my bread. I didn't feel like going out into the cold so I cooked some store bought pizza dough and it was a perfect meal. It's very pretty and I'm sure the leftovers will be even better.Reply
This was very good. I made a few "figure friendly" adjustments though. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts cut up into chunks. I dredged them in flour with salt and pepper added then browned in olive oil. I also added a handful of real bacon bits for flavor but less fat. It was still a yummy, easy, winter dinner that I will definitely make again.Reply
Well Bev...Can I give you 10 stars for this? Let me say that I have been making this recipe for the last couple of years and this is the first time I have reviewed it. I should be ashamed of myself! This is one of the most awesome recipes I have ever come across and ever had the pleasure to cook!! It is pretty much a standard dish around my house. I use garbanzo beans instead of the cannellini beans. I can tell you that every single time my husband eats this, I almost have to perform CPR on him because he inhales it and then ends up choking. I do use a very good dry red Spanish wine that I keep around the house especially for this recipe. Thanks so much Bev and I'm sorry it took me so long to finally post a review. Hugs, SusieReply
