Creamy White Beans with Sausage
Serve as an Entree or a Side
This hearty dish may be enjoyed as an entree or a side dish. If you serve it as a side dish, Emeril likes to serve it with crusty French bread or a simple, green salad.
Heat the oil in a large heavy Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the garlic and sautÃ© until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the sausage and tomatoes. Increase the heat to medium-high
and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the beans and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the beans are tender and flavorful, about 20 minutes.
Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the rosemary, thyme, and spinach. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve hot in wide shallow bowls, drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil. Pass the French bread, if desired.
2 quarts, 4 to 6 servings
