Butter beans in tuna sauce
Fagioli con salsa di tonno
If you love vitello tonnato, you’ll adore butter beans in tuna sauce. A great way to give ordinary beans a total makeover with a rich taste and gorgeous creamy texture.
Boiled butter beans and tuna make a terrific pair and they often appear together in salads, pasta dishes and omelets. This recipe – though very filling – belongs to the salads/sidedish category, and it is so good that you may not have appetite for the main course, if you serve it as a starter.
The combination of dressing and tuna sauce may seem like overkill, but beans are really thirsty, and the dish gets too dry, if you skip the dressing.
