I’ve made this dish twice already. The second time I added a small jar of artichoke hearts and an additional handful of kale simply to extend the vegetable content material. My complete household beloved it each occasions. Although my kids picked out the kale, they devoured the remainder of it with no second thought.

The recipe requires a half can of beans and a few half pound of sausage, casings eliminated, that are considerably awkward quantities to buy.

Go forward and deplete your complete bundle of sausage and might of beans.
