Recipe by Flavours Magazine

Need a quick, delicious, comforting meal?  This one is perfect.  The hot sausage gives the dish the perfect amount of spice.  You can serve this over potatoes or pasta, or all on its own.

What you'll need
1 package Hot Italian sausage, about 6 links
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 large Onion, diced
4 cloves Garlic, minced
2 540 mL cans White kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 796 mL can Crushed tomatoes
2 stalks Fresh rosemary, finely minced
Salt and Pepper

How to
1.  In a pot over medium heat, cook sausages, turning often until browned on all sides.  Pierce sausages with a fork to release juices.  Remove sausages from pan and reserve.

2.  Add olive oil to the pot and add onion.  Saute until lightly browned; add garlic and cook until lightly browned. 

3.  Meanwhile, slice the cooled sausages into 1/2 inch rounds.

4.  Add the beans, tomatoes, rosemary and sausages to the pot; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until sausages are fully cooked and the mixture is heated through.  Season with salt and pepper.  Serve immediately.
