Simple quick, vegetarian, easy side dish and perfect. I love it. Not your every day beans.

  1. Saute -- In a large pan, heat the oil. Add the garlic, onion and red pepper and saute for 2-3 minutes on medium until slightly soft.
  2. Beans and spinach -- Add the beans, seasoning and saute on medium high to high until cooked through, about 5 minutes. As they cook I like to take a fork and slightly mash the beans a bit to get a good consistency. I like to get them a little crisp and browned but not fried dark brown. Just a light browning is good. Add the spinach and break up as it cooks. If too dry you can use a little white wine, chicken broth or just water to loosen the sauce if necessary. Garnish with some good olive oil and ground pepper.
