Savory White Beans & Spinach

Laura Shinn


I love white pasta fagioli, but am trying to stay away from the carbs. I came up with this version without pasta and it is really tast. Even my daughter, who doesn't like beans, loved this!

Adjust the spices to your taste. My measurements are estimates as I always cook to taste.
