In a large skillet with olive oil on medium-high heat, cook minced garlic until tender. Add in diced tomatoes, spinach, Casa Rinaldi Butter Beans (drained and rinsed), Italian seasoning, and a generous sprinkling of pepper. Stir occasionally, and cook until the spinach has wilted. Add in some grated parmesan. Toss together until combined. Serve on top of freshly cooked pasta.
Casa Rinaldi as a company was birthed from a passion for Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, for which Modena is known. Its name is taken from the 1888 building owned by the Rinaldi family, which served as a vinegar factory. The building stands to this day, and is both an active component, being used in the company’s production, and a metaphorical marker—a reminder of tradition and quality.
