Sausage, Spinach, and White Bean Pasta

Most of you have probably heard of Buddy Valastro, aka "The Cake Boss."  You may not know that he also has another show on TLC called "The Kitchen Boss" where he cooks regular meals.  Last week, I happened across this show while I was folding laundry and watched him make the following dish.  It looked so good I just had to try it.  However, I could not find it anywhere online, so this recipe is from memory and may not be exactly like Buddy's.  It must be pretty close, though, because it was really good! :-)  See, doesn't it look yummy???

Here's the recipe:

Sausage, Spinach, and White Bean Pasta  (originally by Buddy Valastro)

1 -1.5 lbs Italian Sausage (hot or mild - you choose!)
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp, fresh rosemary, minced
1 cup white wine
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
2 cans of cannellini beans (white kidney beans), drained & rinsed
1 lb. fresh spinach
16 oz. oreccheite pasta (If you can't find this kind, small shells would work fine)

Cook pasta according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet brown sausage.  Add onion, garlic, and rosemary.  Saute for about 5 minutes.  Add wine to deglaze the pan.  Stir in broth and beans.  Add spinach - it will wilt as you stir it in.

Drain pasta and stir into sausage mixture.  Sprinkle with some Parmesan and serve!

*Side Note - My hubby was not quite as fond of this as I was.  He said it "needed something" and suggested maybe adding some canned, diced tomatoes next time.  It's actually not a bad idea!
