Tuscan Sausage, Spinach and Cannellini Beans

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Snow Pea

If you like spinach, you will like this easy, comfort food type casserole. The addition of the lemon and nutmeg helps give it a nice, fresh taste. It is important to squeeze as much liquid from the spinach as possible. I sometimes use a leftover croissant to make the breadcrumbs. This goes nicely with a Caesar salad.

We're usually not much into casseroles but this was very good. It gives "creamed spinach" a whole new name. The reason it's not getting 5 stars is the frozen spinach, which is easy to use, but I'm certain this would be better starting with fresh. One slight change - for the topping, I put the garlic clove, some fresh bread crumbs, the cheese and a few cubes of butter into the food processor and made a crumb mixture. Is the 6 oz can of beans is a typo? I used a 15 oz can.
