Sausage & White Bean Stew

  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ lb. Italian turkey sausage
  • 5 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 15 oz. cans no-salt-added white beans
  • 1 lb. fresh baby spinach
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese

Step 1: Remove sausage from casing. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté sausage, breaking it into small pieces, until browned and fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove sausage, leaving oil in skillet. Sauté garlic in same skillet until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Step 2: Add beans with their liquid and stir in spinach a few handfuls at a time. Cook until spinach has just wilted and is bright green, about 2 minutes, adding ¼ cup water if needed to keep beans moist.

Step 3: Stir sausage into beans and spinach. Season with black pepper and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Serves 4.
