White Bean and Mushroom Marsala
with spinach / spaghetti

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min
What makes this classic Italian dish special is the rich sauce that comes together with sweet, tart Marsala cooking wine after mushrooms are seared to golden brown. We add wilted spinach and white beans for flavor and color and spoon the sauce over pasta to create a homey Italian classic.

Didn't have shallots so used a little garlic and red onion. Added a little tiny bit of cornstarch to thicken up the sauce at the end. All in all, very delicious meal!

Doubled sauce and added garlic per recommendation then used cornstarch to thicken a bit. Didn't have Marsala so used sherry. Yummy! Second time I cut breasts into tenders. Much easier!

Skipped the wine and I think that's why it didn't turn out great. Fries were soggy - I just don't know how to get sweet potato fries crispy.
