A great recipe from cinnamonspiceandeverythingnice.com (their photo). This dish combines spinach, cannellini beans, bacon, Parmesan cheese, and much more. A very satisfying meal in one easy-to-make dish.
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add onion, red pepper and garlic, season with salt and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes until onion is tender, stirring frequently.
Add the broth, all the beans except 1/2 cup and the spinach. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes until the spinach is wilted. Mash the 1/2 cup beans with a fork and mix them into the skillet.
Remove from heat, stir in the basil and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese.
Transfer to a greased 8x8-inch casserole dish and sprinkle the remaining Parmesan over the top. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 20 minutes. Sprinkle the bacon over the top and serve with more Parmesan if desired.
