"A great way to get your greens! I eat it as a main dish, but this could easily serve 4 to 6 as a side. Feel free to use diced bacon instead of pancetta." – Diana Moutsopoulos
"Very good! I am used to sweet potatoes smothered in brown sugar and butter. I wanted to try a healthier recipe, and this is a keeper!" – jackie pyett
Recipe of the Day

This recipe was given to me by my Aunt Joan, who got it from her neighbor. It is deceptively simple, but so good. I just took it to a potluck and got rave reviews: 'These beans are awesome!'
