I found a mix of baby winter greens to use with this, but you can use whatever you like from spinach and chard to baby kale.

  • 12 oz. dried cannellini beans (or two cans) or small white beans
  • 1/2 pound fresh or frozen spinach, or fresh braising greens, chopped
  • 8 oz. bulk/loose hot or mild italian sausage, browned
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. finely minced fresh garlic
  • 1 can diced or crushed tomatoes or 3-4 large, fresh tomatoes diced
  • 1 can beef broth or 2 c home made beef stock
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
  • 10 cups water
  • 1/2 cup dried penne, cooked al dente and drained (add this to the dish, not the pot because they will balloon up if they sit in liquid for any significant amount of time, like overnight)
  • grated or shredded parmesan or romano cheese for garnish
