Sausage Bean Skillet

  • 1 pound turkey sausage
  • 4 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 cups cooked lima beans  (or any other kind for that matter; about 2-15 oz cans)
  • 15 ounce can tomato sauce

First get out a large skillet. In it fry the turkey sausage until it is quite well cooked. Break it up into small pieces as you cook it. When it is done, drain off any fat. If you like, you can rinse it under hot water to remove as much fat as possible. Return the sausage to the skillet if necessary. Add the celery, onion, and garlic. Stir and cook over medium high heat until the onion is translucent (almost see-through) and tender. Add the honey, undrained beans, and tomato sauce. Add a little tap water too, if you think it’s necessary. Swirl the water around in the tomato sauce-can to get the last of it’s goodness into the skillet. Simmer the whole thing for 10 to 20 minutes. Serve over hot Cooked Rice, or whole wheat pasta. Add a tossed salad and a cool dessert like fruit-juice-gelatin or fruit salad. This is a sturdy dish, I wouldn’t serve pie for dessert with this one.

Here’s another hardy bean recipe for you … I call it tortilla chip pie. It’s very similar to a taco salad that you would get at a restaurant.
