    Just made this recipe tonight and my boyfriend and I loved it! The only thing I would change is substituting another ingredient for the white kidney beans -- I'm thinking perhaps mushrooms. The flavor of the beans just didn't seem to mesh well with the rest of the dish. Otherwise it was super yummy! Will be making again.
