White Beans with Tomato and Sausage

This was a quick recipe to make for dinner on a busy night. It was delicious served with some crusty bread.

1 tbsp olive oil
4 links pre-cooked chicken sausage (I used three-cheese Italian), sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
28-oz can crushed tomatoes
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
pinch red pepper flakes
freshly cracked black pepper
2-15 oz cans Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
4 oz frozen chopped spinach
salt to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until starts to brown. Add onions and garlic to the pot and saute until onions are soft and transparent. Add crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano, pepper flakes, and lots of black pepper. Stir to combine. Add beans to the pot along with the spinach (no need to thaw). Stir and let everything heat thoroughly, about ten minutes. Add in salt to taste.
