This recipe is amazing! It is fresh, tasty and healthy! You can switch up the taste by using different flavors of chicken sausage. I like the spicy Italian sausage. Also, if you have never tried kale, this dish would be a great introduction!
White Bean and Sausage Ragout with Tomatoes, Kale and Zucchini
Adapted from Cooking Light: Cooking Through the Seasons
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
4-5 links chicken sausage, cut into slices
1 zucchini, quartered and cut into (1/2 inch) slices
3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
6 cups chopped trimmed kale (about 1/2 lb.)
1/2 cup water (I use about 1 cup chicken stock)
2 cans cannellini beans or other white beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Suate onion and sausage 4 minutes or until sausage is browned . (If using uncooked sausage, cook sausage before slicing and then saute with onion.) Add zucchini and garlic; cook 2 minutes. Add kale and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve immediately.
