White Bean and spinach stew

I'm reposting a really nice recipe today for white bean and spinach stew..

I thought today would be a great day to try this recipe once again. We loved it  on the first try!!  So good!  

 Mom used to make greens and beans and it was a very tedious job.  This recipe seemed a lot easier than my mom's greens recipe so I thought I'd try it and it was very tasty and super easy to prepare. It's a keeper.  Enjoy!!! This is a great soup/stew type meal for a cool day.  

Remember to bookmark this.  Fall is here and winter isn't too far away.  It will make a great addition to your traditional type meal.

Happy Baking and Cooking from my kitchen to yours!
