Joan recently purchased Marlene Koch's cookbook, Eat What You Love. This evening she served this dish which had a fabulous favor.
8 ounces rigatoni
2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 pound turkey kielbasa sausage, sliced thin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (14-ounce) can white cannellini beans, drained
1 (14-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, well drained
6 ounces (6 cups) baby spinach leaves
6 tablespoons finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese
Freshly cracked black pepper
1. Cook the pasta according to package directions in a large pot. Drain and set aside.
2. Pour chicken broth and garlic into the same pot. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Add the sausage, oregano, and olive oil. Stir well.
3. Stir in the beans, tomatoes, and cooked past to the pot. Place the spinach on top of mixture. Cover with a lid and turn off the heat. Allow steam for about 1 minute, just until spinach has begun to wilt. Sir mixture.
