White Beans and Sausage

Postby Catherine+twins » Thu Dec 03, 2015 10:53 am

Felixx inspired me. I got this from a grocery store circular, although I can never cook a recipe the way I find it. I was trying out a new-to-me vintage cast iron skillet with this one, and I can easily see myself cooking it in camp. I use a squeeze tube of tomato paste for ease of storage, and often use a squeeze of anchovy paste from a similar tube to add depth of flavor.

My kids gave this the thumbs-up :thumbsup: and told me it definitely goes into the menu rotation. :D

White Beans in Herbed Tomato Sauce with Sausages
Serves 4
2 tbsp olive oil
4 sweet Italian sausages
2 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 15-oz can Italian diced tomatoes
1 pinch dried red pepper flakes
1 15-oz can cannellini beans, drained
salt and pepper
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Fry sausages until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes per side. Add remaining oil, garlic and tomato paste and heat 30 seconds. Add diced tomatoes and juice and red pepper flakes, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Add beans and season to taste with salt and pepper. Continue to simmer, occasionally stirring gently, taking care not to break up the beans, until sausage is cooked and sauce has thickened, about 15 minutes.
Serve with bread.

Mom tested, kid approved....what could be better :thumbsup: Thanks for sharing, Catherine. This would be a great recipe for my Super Simple Skillet Suppers on OCIC.
