Italian Sausage Bean and Tomato Bake is a weeknight winner! With crackling sausage, creamy northern beans, juicy tomatoes and a sprinkling of Italian seasoning.



  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 TBSP fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • pinch of cayenne pepper*
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 11/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add oil and sausages, browning on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove sausages to a plate.
  3. Add garlic and parsley leaves to skillet and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Then gently stir in the beans ,red wine, Italian seasoning and cayenne and allow to simmer for 1 minute. Remove the skillet from heat.
  4. Stir the chicken broth, cherry tomatoes, salt and pepper into the bean mixture. Top the beans with the sausages, pushing the sausages down into the beans.
  5. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake until the sausages are fully cooked, (165 degrees on a meat thermometer) or about 10 minutes.
  6. Garnish with additional parsley and serve warm.


*I like food that is pretty spicy, but if you like less heat, then omit the cayenne from the recipe
