"Simple quick, vegetarian, easy side dish and perfect. I love it. Not your every day beans."
( 2 cans, drained but not rinsed)
( medium diced fine)
( 1 box Bird Eye or any brand)
( fresh and chopped fine)
red pepper flakes
ground black pepper
( or you can use chicken broth or just water to loosen up the sauce if too thick)
olive oil, to drizzle as a garnish
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.
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.
