Baked Cannellini "Fagioli Cannellini al Forno"

Ingredients for 4
 3 cups dried beans, garlic, sage, rosemary, extra virgin
olive oil, salt and pepper, 6 slices of sweet bacon

Soak dried beans for several hours or overnight. Boil in
salted water with 1 clove of garlic and 3 sage leaves.
Place the boiled beans in a deep baking dish. Dress
with oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Mix well and bake

Bake for a few more minutes until the pancetta becomes
semi crispy.

Substitute cannellini with pinto beans.
