ONE STOP POT
THE ITALIAN JOB:
The ingredients are simple: 2tbsp olive oil, 1 lb Spicy hot Italian Sausage, 1 large onion thinly sliced, 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped, 1 sprig thyme, 2 15 oz cans cannelloni (white kidney beans), rinsed, 2 cups chicken broth, kosher salt, ground pepper, 5 0z baby spinach (we get the bag salad version).
Once you've got all that assembled, you're one step closer to a tasty treat...
Heat oil in large skillet over warm heat. Add sausage and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through (15-20 minutes). Transfer sausage to plate.
Reduce heat to medium. Heat one more tablespoon oil in same skillet. Add onion, garlic and thyme. Cook until onion is softened (about 5-8 minutes). Add beans and broth and cook (8-10 minutes). Add spinach in handfuls and cook about two minutes. Slice sausage and fold into pot, adding water to thin if desired. Serve in bowls and add freshly grated Parmesan cheese and sprinkle of olive oil to serve.
