Cannellini Bean Balls

Cannellini beans are a white bean developed first in Argentina, but it is popular in central and southern Italy, hence the Italian name.  They are most similar to the kidney bean, and they are popularly used in minestrone soup.  I felt they needed nothing but fresh herbs and a bit of salt to bring out… Continue reading Cannellini Bean Balls
