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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Remove casings from sausage.

Step 2

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.

Very tasty and easy to make. The consistency is stew like so pairing it with a simple salad rounds out a nice meal.

Fabulous recipe! The flavors are incredible! I added kale and topped it off with asiago cheese...yummy!!! The only thing I would do differently next time is serve it over penne pasta!

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!

Made this exactly to recipe and thought it was really great. Won't have it again during the summer but this will be a great fall or winter meal. Very easy and quick to make.

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.

So much flavor from such a simple recipe. I make this on a regular basis and always receive raves.
