White Bean and Sausage Saute'

Well, I attempted beans in my slow cooker for the first time and it came out great!  Check out Slow Cooker Beans . So now I was excited to use them.   This recipe is adapted from Family Fun magazine.  I really liked this dish because most of our dinners are served with a carb; rice, cous cous or pasta.  We eat a lot of that stuff.  This dish was so filling so you didn't miss the side.  I will definitely make this one again!  As for the reviews - Little Man finished his plate (left a few spinach pieces behind though but that was expected.)   Sweet Girl had seconds. And luckily,   there is a lot leftover so my husband can enjoy a big bowl after he gets in from his 8 hour drive tonight.  Enjoy!

White Bean Sausage Saute'

4 Italian sausages
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup of chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
3/4 cup of chicken broth
1 can (14 1/2 ounce) of diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon each sage and parsley
2 cups baby spinach
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pan, saute' sausages until they are cooked through, remove from pan and slice.
Heat the olive oil in the skillet and saute the onions for 4 minutes and add garlic, saute 1 minute more.  Add sausage back to skillet along with broth, tomatoes, beans , sage and parley.  Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.  Add the spinach and salt and pepper and cook until the spinach wilts, about 2 minutes.
