Shortcut Sausage and Beans

30 Min

We know, we know, you want the taste of the one-pot dish that Mama used to make, but you don't have time to cook it all day. Well, by using canned beans, we can take a shortcut that lets us serve this up in minutes.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (14-1/2 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans (white kidney beans), drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans (chick peas), drained

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot, saute sausage over medium-high heat about 1 minute.
  2. Add onion and garlic and cook 6 to 8 minutes or until no pink remains in sausage, stirring to crumble sausage.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and cook an additional 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.


A loaf of crusty bread is the perfect go-along.
