Easy Recipe For White Bean and Sausage Stew

Sunday Dinner: White Bean and Sausage Stew

When the temperatures drop, there's nothing more satisfying than a warm, hearty stew. But you don't need to have an entire afternoon at your disposal to brew up a batch of flavorful soup — all you need is 15 spare minutes.

This stew utilizes canned cannellini beans and precooked chicken sausage to whip up a meal in minimal time. Diced tomatoes add acidity, and fresh kale adds texture and earthiness. If you've got more time on your hands, use dried beans or uncooked sausage. Whatever you choose, pair it with a crusty baguette and a glass of Pinot for the perfect Fall dinner.

Tried this tonight. Excellent dish. Used spinach instead of kale (just don't like the stuff).
