    Cranberry bean is also called Roman bean. My grocery store only had Roman beans, which are an Italian type of Cranberry bean. Cranberry beans are originally from Columbia.

    I really liked this as an alternative to salad for a veggie with dinner. I used canned pinto beans since no one had every heard of cranberry beans and I couldn't find them anywhere. Turned out great. Will make this again soon since I can't get enough of butternut squash right now!

    i thought this was alright. the flavors were good, but i think it would've been just as good with canned beans. i didn't think the use of fresh beans made any sort of difference. in fact, i think they beans could've been left out altogether -- the rest of the vegetables were the delicious part of the whole thing!

    Any ideas for a cranberry bean substitute? I would prefer a fresh bean but will use canned if I have to..

    I made this with fresh cranberry beans from the Greenmarket--substituted red Swiss chard for the broccoli rabe, which was delicious. Leftovers were perfect for lunch the next day.
