The definition of comfort food... While it's traditionally flavored with ham hocks I cut the fat by using turkey sausage. The definition of comfort food... While it's traditionally flavored with ham hocks I cut the fat by using turkey sausage.

Ingredients

    2 Tablespoons of olive oil
    4 cloves of garlic, crushed
    1 small onion chopped
    1 lb. of Jennie O Italian turkey sausage
    1/2 cup of chopped spinach
    2 Tablespoons of basil
    1 tablespoon of Rosemary
    1/2 tsp of fennel
    1/2 tsp of oregano
    4 cans of white beans
    1 15 oz. can of tomato sauce
    Barilla plus spaghetti (one box)

Directions

Heat 2 Tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.
Brown the turkey sausage meat. Add the four cloves of garlic and the chopped onion to the meat once it has browned. Add Spinach, basil, rosemary, fennel and oregano as well as the tomato sauce. Add the four cans of white beans. Simmer for 1/2 hour uncovered and 1/2 hour covered.

Prepare Barilla pasta seperately. Add two ounces of prepared Barilla plus pasta per serving. Do not add all the pasta to the whole pot of fagioli if you are not serving it all right away. The pasta will become soggy if you leave it in there to as you store it. Prepare the pasta seperately and add 2 ounces per portion. If you cook the whole box at one time you can coat it in olive oil so it doesn't stick when you use it again. Refrigerate or freeze the leftovers.

Serve it hot and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Makes 8 1 cup servings.
