I love a great deal. Last week, my local Aldi store had a special on Honeysuckle White sweet Italian turkey sausages. A 20 ounce package was less than three dollars. A steal. Now, my freezer is full of them. So, stay tuned in the coming weeks for new and exciting ways to serve Italian sausage. This first recipe is simple and delicious. Seriously, I threw it together in less than 30 minutes. (eat your heart out Rachel Ray) I served it with some nice crusty Italian bread and the rest of the Chardonnay used in the preparation. Yum-o-yum.
sausage with white beans and tarragon
Cook 1 1/2 pounds Italian sausage in olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove. Add 2 sliced carrots and 1 chopped onion to the skillet, cook over medium heat until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Add 1 15-ounce can white beans (I used cannellini) drained and rinsed, and 3/4 cup white wine. Simmer for 5 minutes. Fold in sliced sausage and fresh tarragon. (I used 1 1/2 tsp dried) Salt and pepper to taste. (makes 3 piggy-sized portions or 4 regular)
