I make this all the time for potlucks, as a side dish throughout the week, and I've even used the white bean mash as a base for a vegetarian pizza. It's so versatile, healthy, and goes with just about anything. I have reheated this dish by a steam method on the stovetop, and also in the microwave. It seems to do fine both ways -- I think it doesn't dry out as easily as other bean dishes, probably due to the soffritto (oil) that coats the beans. I've actually even served this dish cold during summer as a BBQ side dish. It still tastes great and is probably healthier than a mayonnaise based potato salad, but provides the same level of satisfaction.
