Cooking and Entertaining: White Bean Dip with Rosemary

White Bean Dip with Rosemary

Last year, Kevin and I took an Italian cooking and wine pairing class taught by Diane Manteca and Adam Centamore.  Everything was delicious, but my favorite recipe from that evening was Diane’s Cannellini Bean Dip.  It’s hearty, tasty and easy to prepate, and I often serve it to guests with crostini, but crudités could easy be substituted as a healthier option.

Diane was kind enough to allow me to share her recipe, and I’ve included a few tweaks I’ve made.
