      Honestly, not sure where I went wrong with this one. Actually, I'm thinking that I may not like this combination of ingredients. The final dish seemed way too bitter. Between the canned tomatoes, lemon juice, and sage, the flavor just wasn't all that pleasant. Fresh tomatoes would be an improvement, I'm sure, but don't know that I would try this one again.

      Excellent dish when the sage is going crazy in the garden. Hearty enough for a vegetarian main course, improves the next day, and it's good warm or cold. I added a diced onion in addition to the garlic, and I increased the sage substantially because I wanted that to be the keynote flavor. (But be a bit careful, too much sage can add a bitter note. So I began with about 3 T fresh sage, sauteed with the garlic and onions, then added another T. near the end of the cooking.) This dish is very forgiving-- you can used canned or fresh tomatoes and beans, but I think the fresh sage is key for a true Tuscan Fagioli. Try it over polenta of any type. When I'm in a rush, I just broil a few slices of that precooked polenta-in-a-tube (Trader Joes) and top with this dish. Super healthy and so tasty.

      This was a nice bean salad that got even better over time. The next day this was so yummy cold! I substituted 2 cups diced fresh vine tomatoes for the can of diced tomatoes. Since I really wanted the fresh raw tomatoes, I added the beans to the sauteed garlic and sage for a brief minute and then added all of that to the raw tomatoes & lemon juice in a large bowl. I liked the use of fresh tomatoes, however, next time I will take care to drain them better and increase the sage to 3 tablespoons as the fresh tomatoes & juice kept raw drowned out the sage flavor a bit and I would have preferred more. It was great served with tuna salad. Thanks for posting! [Made & Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC Tag]
