This dish was hearty, subtle, and flavored with garlic, rosemary and tomatoes.
Yields: A tapas serving for 4
1 spicy chicken sausage, removed from casing
1/2 can red kidney beans (white cannellini beans would be better)
1/4 yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1 tomato, or 1 can diced tomatoes
salt and pepper
1 t. fresh rosemary, chopped
1 cup spinach, chopped (optional) adds good health, but not a lot of flavor
In a small saucepan, brown and break up the sausage. Add onions and spinach. Cook for about 5 minutes or until onions are tender. Add garlic; heat for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, beans, and remaining ingredients. Simmer for 15 minutes.
