 White Beans and Spinach
THIS RECIPE is a variation of one I received from my Italian mother. I've prepared spinach like this for years - especially since my children like it this way! It complements a variety of main courses, and whenever I serve it to guests, they really enjoy it. -Lucia Johnson, Massena, New York
