Today's Pot of Comfort Food

Turkey Sausage, Kale, White Beans and Pasta

Turkey Sausage
Diced Onions
White Beans
Diced Tomatoes
Small pasta
Salt and pepper to taste

I don’t really measure when I cook so I will describe what I did.

I bought a large package of Italian flavored turkey sausage and removed it from its casing –I broke it up and sautéed it with chopped onions.

Meanwhile, I cooked a bag of cleaned and chopped kale in a pot of boiling water. When it was just tender I drained it.

In another pot I boiled a cup of small pasta- whatever your family likes.
I happen to have a box of Barilla Piccolini mini wheels …so I used some of that.

To my pot of sausage I added a can of diced tomatoes and a small (15 oz can) of white beans.
I also chopped the kale a little bit more and added it to my pot.
I turn the heat down and let everything simmer so the flavors blend together.
Once it is ready I tossed in my pasta wheels. (*don't throw them in too early they will over cook and fall apart)

I served it with a salad and a loaf of crusty bread.

***I also made a pan of hot peppers, tomatoes and potatoes today so we had them too. Boy they were HOT!!!

It was filling- delicious and had a little of everything good.
