  • Sort and wash the beans; place in a large Dutch oven. Cover with water to 2 inches above the beans; cover and let stand 8 hours. Drain the beans. Place the beans in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker.

  • Lightly mash the bean mixture with a potato masher, breaking up the tomato and garlic. Add the sausage to the slow cooker; cover and cook on LOW until thoroughly heated, about 20 minutes. Add the spinach and parsley, stirring just until the spinach begins to wilt. Discard the rosemary sprigs. Ladle the stew into bowls; drizzle evenly with the oil before serving.

Tips

Multicooker Directions: In Step 1, place the drained soaked beans in the inner pot of a 6-quart multicooker. Add the stock, tomato, salt, pepper, garlic, and rosemary sprigs.

There are two issues I have with this recipe: 1. Cannellini beans are also called white kidney beans and have a toxin in them that can make you very sick so you need to boil the beans after soaking for at least 15 min to kill the toxin. 2. This recipe is calling for COOKED sausage even though it does not say that. A person may not realize this and use fresh sausage and of course 20 min. in a slow cooker would not cook it and that would be the second opportunity to get sick from this recipe! Read More

This was a kid pleaser and hubby pleaser! I love that if you plan ahead and soak the beans the night before this is truly a load and go recipe. I ended up using a full package of sausage (11 oz) and it was the perfect amount. I didn’t have parsley but it was delicious without it. Read More

I also added a poblano chili and some sliced mushroom to stretch the recipe. I do not care for rosemary so I added a stalk of fresh basil. Easy and delicious. Read More

This was an easy, delicious and comfort food recipe. I used canned cannellini beans (they were on hand) and shortened cooking time. Turned out great! Read More
