Dinner tonight was a take on one of our favorite meals (see recipe below). Unfortunately I didn't have all the ingredients in the house and seeing as the goal was not to go to the grocery store I adapted what I had to make a meal. I included beans, sausage, a sliced fresh tomato, diced tomatoes from the can, pepper, basil and marjoram. I then put the stew onto a leftover roll and had a sausage stew sandwich. Quite tasty and it will definitely make Marc jealous when I tell him about it.
- olive oil
- 1 pound low-fat Italian turkey sausage
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 medium onion, diced
- 2 stalks of celery, diced
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 can (15.5oz) cannelloni beans (or other white beans) drained and rinsed
- 1 (14oz) can diced Italian style tomatoes in their juice
Once sausages are cooked, remove them from the skillet. Add peppers, onion, celery and garlic to skillet and sautee for 3 minutes (add additional olive oil if needed). While vegetables are sautéing, slice sausage. Add sausage and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes until browned.
Add oregano, basil, thyme, tomatoes with their juice and beans. Simmer over medium low heat, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
