What’s another easy and impressive side dish to serve guests this Memorial Day Weekend? Homemade Rosemary Baked Beans. It is a quick toss of ingredients and then bake in the oven and you have taken this ordinary side dish into an extraordinary treat! Using cannellini beans makes the dish lighter and fresh rosemary really steps up the taste. If you are making the ketchup from last week’s post this is another perfect use. It’s definitely another taste sensation!
From by the bay wishing you cannellini food memories!
