1 lb spicy italian sausage links
1 10oz box frozen chopped spinach
1 can white beans, rinsed (or 2c home cooked beans)
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon
2 T flour
1/2 c white wine
1 lb orecchette pasta
salt and pepper
fresh grated parmesan cheese
Put a pot of water to boil on the stove. Remove sausage from links and brown in a dutch oven. Once browned, add in defrosted spinach and beans. Add in lemon zest and flour. Cook for a few minutes until flour is cooked. About this time, the water should be boiling and add in pasta - cook according to package directions. Add in lemon juice and wine, cook until slightly thickened. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper. Once pasta is cooked, add to sauce and top with cheese.
It was a very tasty dish. If I were to make this again, I would add herbs of some sort - rosemary or parsley...it just needed something.
