Beans with a light tomato sauce and fragrant sage leaves, is one of the most classic Tuscan dishes, and common accompaniment to braised dishes, steak or stew. I still haven’t found the reason for their name, which translates “beans in the manner of the little bird.” Served with Italian link sausages, these 'twitter beans' also make a perfect winter main course. Since the temperatures are dropping all over Italy this week, why not cook up some fagioli, watch a sports event or a film on TV and call it an early night?
