Italian Sausage with Saucy White Beans


Italian Sausage with White Beans

I have been dragging my feet about posting this recipe.  Unfortunately it is due to my own vanity.  There is nothing wrong with this dish, in fact it is incredibly tasty.  The reason I was dragging my feet is because I was not happy with the pictures I took.  However I decided my photography insecurites is no reason to deprive you of such a tasty dish. 

I made this over a week ago for Hubby.  I needed something quick and easy because he had a softball game that night.  Because of the rush there are no step-by-step photos and the ones I do have are “okay”.  I am probably just being really hard on myself.

Enough complaining let me tell you about this dish.  The inspiration for this dish was the Italian Sausages with Balsamic Tomatoes that I made the week before.  It is basically the same dishm just adding in some white beans.  Hubby and I were very impressed with how the beans came out.  They were flavorful and saucy.  This dish is perfect to serve with some bread to scoop up the beans.   It will become a new kind of comfort food for me.  Previous to this dish I had only had Spanish beans over rice.  In fact I thought it was weird when people would eat beans straight up, man was I missing out.

Ok so here it is, really simple.

      Very simple…but, I had to make my beans from scratch..Although I like Pork sausage, I used turkey sausage…Must say, I didn’t think we would like this recipe. It was a leap of faith that I even triied this. I didn’t have fire roasted tomatoes..Reg. tomatoes worked out fine…So Yummy..
      Had to stop Hubby
      One more thing. I estimate this meal cost us about $7.00/4 servings
