A new look at cooking and home decorating...with an attempt to add more greens to the plate, more vegetarian options & hopefully lots of new ideas to explore

Italian Sausage simmered with Cannellini Beans

2 tablespoons Olive oil
1 Red onion, large dice
1 sprig rosemary
3 cloves garlic minced
1 pound sweet Italian sausage
1 pound hot Italian sausage
2, 1 pound 3 oz (19 oz cans), drained Cannellini beans
1 ½ cups white wine
1 Teaspoon Kosher salt or sea salt
Fresh pepper

Preheat oven to 400

Place olive oil in a Dutch oven. Turn heat to medium then add in the onions. Cook onions for about 10 minutes until tender.

With a fork poke holes all over the sausages so the flavor of the sausage will simmer in with the beans. Set aside.

After ten minutes add into the Dutch oven the rosemary and garlic. Cook 1 more minute. Add in the beans and the sausage, layering or stirring to combine. Pour in the wine, and sprinkle the salt and pepper over the top.

Place in the oven for 1 hour.

Once cook you may eat as is or thicken the mixture by adding ½ cup parmesan and ½ cup store-bought breadcrumbs to the top then run under the broiler to cook for a minute or so. Drizzle the top with extra virgin olive oil then serve.
