With the Milanese sauce, these beans shine at room temperature and could be done a day in advance. They will hold at room temperature about 2 hours; after that, chill them. This recipe is from "The Splendid Table's How to Eat Supper", by Lynne Rosetto Kasper & Sally Swift. Cook to Cook: You’ll need 2 large, shallow pans for the beans. Ideally they should be straight-sided sauté pans, but big slope-sided skillets work, too. Improvise lids with cookie sheets or foil. Serves 10 to 14 as part of a large meal.
