Tips and Tricks for making the best Italian Sausage Bean and Tomato Bake:

  • Start with quality meat – use organic Italian sausage and tomatoes if possible.  I have said it before but the best tasting results start with the highest quality ingredients.
  • Using fresh herbs is always best when the recipe calls for it. Unfortunately sometimes the grocer doesn’t carry them or they are not in season.  When this happens I use re-hydrated herbs. I just soak the amount of herbs I need it in a few drops of water and it re-hydrates to almost fresh. The smell and color were like fresh herbs, and to have herbs on hand anytime is a real treat.  You can find jars of dehydrated herbs in the spice aisle or produce section of most grocery stores.
  • When it comes to using spices, keep the shelf fresh by storing spices in a cool, dark place, away from direct heat or sunlight. In tightly closed containers whole spices will stay fresh for about 4 years, ground spices for about 2 to 3 years and dried herbs for 1 to 3 years

INGREDIENTS

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

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Heat large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add oil and sausages, browning on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove sausages to a plate.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake until the sausages are fully cooked, (165°F on a meat thermometer) or about 10 minutes.
  • Garnish with additional parsley and serve warm.

NOTES

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