White Beans, Chorizo, Onions & Peppers in a Creamy Red Sauce

Its Friday! That means it's time for another Your Recipe- My Kitchen Post.

I found this recipe for White Beans, Chorizo, Onions & Peppers in a Creamy Red Sauce over at Care's Kitchen and had to try it.  I have professed my love for beans many times like here, here, here and here and I love any sausage but Chorizo especially.  I made a few changes (mainly because I was out of some of the ingredients) but for the most part the recipe is the same.  For the original recipe you can click here.

Here's my  version:
Adapted from Cares Kitchen

What you need:
2 cans small white beans, drained and rinsed
1 green pepper and 1 red pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
4-6 chorizo links, sliced on a bias into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon anchovy paste (optional)
1/4-1/2 cup heavy cream
Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese
A few handfuls of fresh  baby spinach
Salt and Fresh Cracked Pepper to taste

What you do:
In a hot skillet brown your chorizo until cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Turn off pan and leave them in there to sit. (Do not drain)
In another large pan, heat the olive oil and add onion and garlic and saute 3-4 minutes.
Add peppers and continue cooking until vegetables begin to soften. 
Add diced tomato, anchovy paste and heavy cream and mix well until the sauce lightens.
Take the chorizo pieces from their pan and place them into the vegetable/sauce mixture pan. Cook another minute or two until all ingredients are folder together well.
In a separate pot, add about a tablespoon or two of the chorizo grease to the bottom. Add your white beans and cook over medium heat to warm and coat with that delicious chorizo flavor.
Combine all the ingredients and stir together well.
Add a lot of cheese and stir in the spinach.
