We love to have this out on the back porch in the summer if the mosquitoes aren't hungrier than we are! You, of course, can have it anytime of year you want. Very simple and clean flavors. A green salad, crusty garlic bread, and crisp white wine make a classic meal.

- 3 (16 ounce) cans cannellini beans or 3 (16 ounce) cans great northern beans, drained and rinsed
