Can't wait to try this with some fresh beans from the bulk bin at my local whole foods market. Stay away from the cans! ; ]

This was actually so good! I added red chili flakes and some salt, since I used unsalted butter. Served with the ricotta-spinach topping as well.

This is incredibly easy but very good! I added a few chili flakes too and took this to a party and people kept asking for more.
