"Winner, winner. Love the addition of the Wine in this recipe. That really bumped up the delicate taste that these beans normally have. Naturally the lemon juice and garlic helped out. But its the wine that pulls this one together * Can't wait to serve this one to my family.

Taste of Home Field Editor Volunteer who really enjoyed testing this one."
