Margy Cooks! Beans and Greens
Margy's not an Italian, but she plays one in the kitchen.
It's true -- she's our resident pizzaiola, after all. And tonight, while I returned home from my periodic office stint, she prepared one of our household staples, the grilled sausage sampler. That's two Italian sausages and two bratwurst, which make a good combo when put together. But the side dish is what nudged the meal toward Italy, and Margy whipped it up like an old pro.
Naturally, that means she used plenty of garlic in her spinach and white beans. A good pinch of red pepper too. My mother, maker of countless versions of beans and greens, will be very proud of her favorite daughter-in-law.
