Tuscan Sausage Dip with White Beans & Spinach

1 onion, diced

1 pound hot Italian sausage

4 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon thyme

1/2 cup dry white wine

1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened

1 6-oz package fresh spinach, chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 can white beans*, drained

1 cup diced tomato

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook diced onion and Italian sausage (remove casings if applicable) in a large skillet over medium-high heat, until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain.

Stir in garlic, oregano and thyme; cook 1 minute. Stir in wine; cook 2 minutes or until liquid has almost completely evaporated.

Reduce heat to medium; add cream cheese. Cook and stir mixture until cream cheese is melted. Stir in spinach and salt, and cook 2 minutes or until spinach is slightly wilted. Gently stir in beans and tomato. Pour mixture into a 2-qt. baking dish; sprinkle with cheeses.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with chips, crostini or crackers.
