Kielbasa and Cannelini Beans

Even though we have decided to eat a healthier diet, unhealthy items are still lurking in my cupboards and freezer. Since I don't want to waste food I'm trying to sneak them into our meals. I figure if you sneak a not so healthy item in amongst the healthy it will get canceled out, right. Well, even if it's not right, that's what I'm telling myself. This is my healthy way to use up some kielbasa. I must admit the whole time I was eating I was thinking how good it would be over garlic bread. This recipe was also fast, taking less than 20 minutes. I liked that the sauce, which had a nice tang, didn't overpower the rest of the ingredients. I still have some kielbasa in the freezer, so we may be having this again, probably over garlic bread.

Kielbasa and Cannelini Beans

From Quick Cooking

1 lb kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 small onion, chopped

1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper

1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup packed brown sugar - I used slightly less than 1/4 cup and didn't pack it, I prefer it on the tangy side.
2 tablespoons A1 or similar steak sauce
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 can (15 oz.) cannelini beans, rinsed and drained

Cook sausage for 2-3 minutes in a skillet. Stir in onion and peppers. Cook stirring occasionally until sausage is lightly browned and peppers are tender. Drain any excess liquid. Combine the sugar with the liquid ingredients. Stir mixture into the skillet then add the beans. Cook until beans are heated through.

Enjoy,
Jaynie
