my cast iron dutch oven + superfast suppers cookbook = tuscan chickpea stew
No need to ask tonight, "What's for dinner?" Got you covered.
I whipped up this dinner last night in less than 20 minutes. Let me repeat that. 20 minutes. Had I known it was truly a superfast supper, I would have saved it until Monday. (My loss is your gain!) Let's just say it was incredibly easy to make and delightfully tasty.
Tuscan Chickpea Stew
2 T olive oil, divided
3 garlic cloves, crushed
4 Chicken Sausage link, fully cooked
1 T fresh or dried rosemary
1/4 t. pepper
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with green pepper, celery, and onions, undrained
3 (15.5 oz) cans chickpeas, undrained
3 cups fresh prepackaged baby spinach
1/2 cup freshly Parmesan cheese
Heat 1 T. oil in sauce pan or dutch oven or medium-high heat. Add garlic and next 3 ingredients. Saute 4 min or until sausage is browned. Add tomatoes and 2 cans chickpeas, scraping pan to loosen brown bits.
Drain remaining can chickpeas. Add to pan. Bring to boil: cover, reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes. Uncover and stir in spinach; cook 2 minutes our until spinach wilts. Place a slice of crusty bread in shallow bowl. Spoon stew into bowls over bread. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cheese. Done and done. Let's eat!
