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.

Just finished making this recipe for the 4th time since discovering it this summer. I love it and it's my new comfort food. I add a little crushed red pepper or sriracha sauce for spice and eat it with cheddar cornbread muffins. Delicious!
