Italian Sausage and Spinach Bake


¾ pound uncooked Italian sausage links, sliced
2-10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1-19-ounce can white kidney beans (cannellini), rinsed and drained
1 small red onion, finely chopped
¾ cup evaporated fat-free milk
½ cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese, divided
1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 teaspoons butter or margarine, melted


In a large skillet cook sausage over medium heat about 8 minutes or until brown, turning often. Drain on paper towels. Slice into bite-size pieces.

Grease a 2-quart oval or square baking dish; set aside. In a large bowl combine sausage, spinach, beans, onion, and evaporated milk, ¼ cup of the Romano or Parmesan cheese, the lemon peel, lemon juice, ground nutmeg, and pepper.

Spoon into prepared baking dish.

For topping, in a small bowl combine bread crumbs, remaining Romano or Parmesan cheese, garlic, and melted butter or margarine; sprinkle atop casserole.

Bake at 375°, about 35 minutes or until heated through.
