Another recipe from Eileen. This one I love for the name alone.

Vaguely Tuscan Stew

½ lb turkey sausage
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Splash white wine or lemon juice
Chicken broth as needed- about a cup
1 can tiny white beans, drained
1 bag baby spinach or 1 bunch asparagus (or both)
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
Rosemary or thyme, chopped

Remove sausage from casings. Heat large sauté pan over medium high heat. Add sausage and brown well, drain any fat. Reduce heat slightly and add garlic. Deglaze with wine or lemon juice and chicken broth (stir up any brown bits from the bottom) and season with salt and pepper. Add herbs, beans and spinach or asparagus, and tomatoes, then let simmer briefly. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with some nice crusty bread. If you want the tomatoes to disappear, add earlier.
