Yes it is expensive but, this recipe will make it last a little longer than a couple of bites. And you can add more to the stew to make it last even longer. It is totally worth it though.
Let's get to the recipe. Here is what you will need.
2 prepared Beyond Italian Sausages
1-28 ounce can of diced tomato
1-15.5 ounce can of cannellini beans rinsed and drained
1 large zucchini diced into bite size pieces
1 small can of mushrooms chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
I sauteed the sausages in a little extra virgin olive oil until they were browned on all sides along with the mushrooms. You can also add a little veg broth or water to cook them up. Remove the sausages from the pan when they have finished cooking. Leave the mushrooms in the pan.
Add the tomato, beans, zucchini and spices. Stir to combine.
Slice the sausage in half long ways then into 1/4 inch pieces and add to the stew. Stir again and enjoy.
Oh yea, by all means, you can double the tomato, beans, mushrooms and zucchini and use all four sausages to make a bigger batch.
