That's like this recipe I came up with a week ago & just made today. Italian gravy beans. The recipe is in "what did I cook this weekend". I had 2 cans of light red kidneys, could've used 3. But here's a pic;
Flavor is spot on Italian to me. With light red kidney beans, Stewed tomatoes, Sweet onion, celery, Italian herbs, garlic & Irish red ale, EV Mediterranean olive oil etc. It's thick & damn tasty.
