Sausages and White Beans

Another favorite that I haven't made in a while, it's also super easy and pretty quick to make. This was Rosie Jane approved tonight, she said it was one of her favorites. A recipe from my 365 Easy Italian Recipes cookbook.

Sausages and White Beans
serves 6

1 1/2 lbs lightly spiced sausage, such as luganega, cut into 2-inch pieces (I use sweet Italian sausage)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 c chopped carrot
1 c chopped celery
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 14-oz can diced tomatoes
1 16-oz can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
salt and pepper to taste

In a nonreactive Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, turning, 5 minutes or until lightly browned all over. Add carrots, celery, and garlic. Cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 25-30 minutes, or until sausage is cooked through. Add white beans and simmer 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
