Cannellini Beans with Sausages and Sage

Oxmoor House

Prep: 10 minutes; Cook: 34 minutes

Dinner doesn't get any easier than this hearty meal. From start to finish, it's prepared in one skillet, so there's very little cleanup involved. And you don't have to worry about any side dishes because it's a complete meal all in itself. We used sweet turkey Italian sausage, but you can spice things up a bit with hot turkey Italian sausage. If you're watching your sodium intake, look for no salt-added tomatoes and white beans; this will reduce the amount of sodium to 1,067 milligrams per serving.


5 servings (serving size: 1 sausage link and 1 cup tomato-bean mixture)
