Wonderful bean, one problem is finding poles long enough to acommodate the growth, well over the 7-8 feet mentioned in the product review. Whilst a student in Bologna I frequented a ristorante under the Due Torre that served the Bianchi di Spagna (simmered till al dente)then mixed with chunky tuna fish, thinly sliced red onions, plenty of evoo, salt, pepper, and a liberal dousing of fresh lemon juice. Buon Appetito!
