Savory Italian sausage and beans combine for a quick and easy weeknight meal. If you're lucky, you'll have some leftovers for next day's lunch.
12 ounces sweet Italian turkey sausage
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 (19-ounce) can cannellini beans or other white beans, drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced Italian-style tomatoes, undrained
How to Make It
Remove casings from sausage.
Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, onion, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add sausage, and cook 8 minutes, or until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in oregano and remaining ingredients; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
while putting this together I thought that it was kinda odd, like it should be served over something. But then my seven year old asked if it was kinda like chili! WHAT A SMART KID! This to me is like an Italian spin on a chili. Quick and easy. I had a can of hunts spicy pepper tomato and don't feel like anything was sacrificed. I added the seasoning as i saw fit and as suggested by another reviewer I added in a splash of white wine! awesome meal nothing to it!
Supereasy, superfast, less than 20min. Made to recipe except used fresh garlic, oregano & basil and added 1/2bag of baby spinach because we had it in the fridge. Served with garlic ciabbatta sticks and simple green salad topped with shaved parm.
