Cannellini are often the bean of choice used in Tuscan cooking - most notably in Fagioli all'Uccelletto, where boiled cannellini beans are sauteed in olive oil, sage and tomatoes, the way small birds (uccelli) are prepared in this part of Italy.
They are excellent in many others dishes: minestrone soups, pasta, salad or just dressed with extra virgin olive oil.
