I used the dried dill as listed in the recipe. The dill completely overwhelmed this dish. I tasted it before it was added and thought it was good. I'll probably try this again and cut down on the dill by about 75%.

Adapted ingredients with an Italian twist. Reduced vegetables (onion, celery and carrots) to 1/2 cup each; eliminated dill and added romano cheese grated over top before serving. I didn't need all the bean water as stated in the recipe. I love these beans and will make them again and again. This dish kind of reminds me of an mock gnocchi dish.

I make these all the time! I never use celery, but instead double the carrots. Definitely use fresh herbs for this recipe. YUM!

I love this recipe! I make it per the instructions, with the dried herbs, and haven't had any problems. Super delicious lunches for the whole work week!
