Winter Wonder

Although it doesn't photograph as well as many other recipes, this chicken sausage and bean casserole was perfection. I found this recipe in Everyday Food magazine (one of my four food magazine subscriptions!) It was touted as the perfect winter recipe to have with a glass of white wine. Although it was 77 degrees in Houston today, I decided to give it a try. It is January, after all!

For such a straightforward recipe, this one was a homerun. It was healthy, delicious, quick, and easy (remember, it's Thursday!) The ingredients are deceptively simple, but they work together beautifully. The recipe consists of sage, onions, garlic, white wine, chicken sausage, cannellini beans, and bread crumbs. The creamy beans worked perfectly with the sweet sausage and crispy bread crumbs. If you like things a bit spicy, I recommend you add about 1/2 a teaspoon of crushed red pepper instead of black pepper. It turned out savory with a spicy kick. We ate it with sauteed spinach. Brent was suspicious of the beans but ended up loving it. Enjoy!
