There’s a woman at my farmers’ market selling all sorts of dried beans and grains. In the past I wasn’t much of a bean lover, but I’ve been converted. Her cannellini beans are certainly worth the effort of soaking and cooking rather than using canned beans. A while back I made a very Tuscan dish of beans and sausage. It’s a hearty dish, perfect for a wintry day.
It’s a favorite of J.’s and I realized that the same recipe would be fabulous substituting shrimp for the sausage. For the most part I followed the same recipe although I did add chopped fresh rosemary and did not serve it with grilled bread. Be sure not to over cook your shrimp-they really only need a few minutes in the stew and they’re ready. Buon Appetito!
