Squash and White Bean Soup

We had an old fall favorite tonight!  It is quick and delish!  

Also, check out my friends over at Sunday Night Cooking for some other great recipes...

serves 4

1 T. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 14.5 oz. can tomatoes
1 small butternut squash, peeled and diced into 1/2 inch pieces(4 c.) 
            (note: microwave whole squash 30 sec. to soften for initial cutting)
1 T. fresh thyme, or less dried
Salt and pepper
2 15 oz. cans cannellini beans, rinsed
1 bunch spinach, ~4 cups

Heat oil in Dutch oven over med-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft, 5-6 minutes. Add the tomatoes and their juices, cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. 

Stir in squash, thyme, 5 c. water, 1 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until squash is tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in beans and spinach and cook until spinach is wilted and beans are heated through, 2-3 minutes. 

Serve with biscuits and parmesan cheese.
