Italian sausage with cannalini beans and kale

Comfort food comes in many forms. This is a very simple recipe that has been a favorite of ours.  I have made this every week or two for the last 6 months. When I tell Fred this is for dinner he laughs because it is on the menu so often. But we don’t get sick of it.

I make this with hot Italian sausage but use sweet if that is what you prefer…both work fine.

3 links hot Italian sausage

8 oz. sliced baby bella mushrooms

1 medium onion roughly chopped

1 red pepper roughly chopped

2 15 oz. cans cannellini beans

1 cup chicken stock

1 bunch kale stems removed and chopped

1. In a deep sauté pan cook sausage links over medium low heat for 15-20 minutes, till well browned and cooked through. Remove to plate and cut into 1 1/2 inch slices.

2. Increase heat to medium high and add mushrooms. Sauté  7-8 minutes till nicely browned. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Add onion and pepper reduce heat to medium and let wilt.

4. Add beans, sausage and broth raise heat to high and bring broth to boil.

5. Add kale and cover for 3-5 minutes. The kale should wilt but remain bright green.

Serve and enjoy!
