Recipe

There is something about the combination of white beans, spinach, mushrooms, garlic, and tomatoes that I absolutely love.  It's warm, comforting, and makes the perfect cold weather meal in my opinion.  My favorite way to serve it is on a bed of creamy polenta or quinoa.  I also like to double or triple the recipe since it freezes well and can be quickly popped in the microwave for a future meal.
