White Beans with Spinach and Sausage

When I make this white bean stew at home, I usually use a pound of dry white beans that I slow cook during the night. The next day, when I make the stew the beans are ready and my stew will come together in about 20 minutes, which makes this recipe one of my go to weekday meals. If I am really pressed for time, I use canned cannellini beans but I do prefer to cook my own. Sometimes I find Andouille sausages at the store, so I use them for this dish to give it a little spicy flavor, but any smoked sausage will work well. As for the vegetables in this recipe, you can use collard greens instead of spinach.

I use brown rice to accompany this recipe, which makes it a heartier meal.  Some shredded carrots with basic lemon and salt is a nice side.
