This dish was brought to our September 2007 potluck dinner by Ken Jaffe, our President. Several people requested the recipe, so we posted it here. NOTE: A member who made it said that she doubled the red pepper flakes, used 1 can of beans, used dried parsley, omitted the salt and pepper, and cooked it for an hour. Those changes are reflected in the recipe.
