     Italian Sausage and White Beans

Category   Salads - Soups - Sidedishes
Sub Category   Low-fat
Servings   4

12 Ounces sweet Italian turkey sausage
1/2 Cup chopped green and/or red bell pepper
1/2 Cup chopped onion
1 Teaspoon minced garlic
1 Teaspoon dried oregano
1 Tablespoon or 1 brick of chicken bouillon
1 Teaspoon dried basil or 1/2 cup fresh basil or spinach finely chopped
1 19 ounce can cannellini beans or other white beans drained
1 14.5 ounce can diced Italian-style tomatoes, undrained

Remove casings from sausage. Heat a large, deep skillet coating with cooking spray or olive oil over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion and garlic and saute 3 minutes. Add sausage, and cook 8 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in oregano, basil and remaining ingredients; reduce heat to medium low. Cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, adding a little water if needed.
My garden was overgrown with basil one summer, and wed eaten, froze, dried and gave away as much as possible. In looking for healthy ways to use basil, I found this recipe which became a favorite quick and healthy dinner. I usually double up on the recipe since it tastes even better a day or so later and freezes really well too. Try a sprinkle of parmesan or parsley before serving. Yum.
