Expert Tips

  • Cannellini beans are large white kidney beans that are widely used in Italian cuisine. They are soft-textured and very mild in flavor. If you don't have garlic pepper use 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  • Add 1 can (6 ounces) tuna in water, drained, with beans in step 1. Increase Italian dressing to 3/4 cup in step 2. Continue as directed.
