There are roughly a jillion ways to make this dish and everyone claims that theirs is correct. Most versions are “soupier” than ours, but here’s how we do it at our house and there are rarely any leftovers!
1 lb ditalini, cooked al dente
2 packages Smart Sausage Italian Style
2 15 oz. cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 25 oz. jar prepared red pasta sauce (or an equivalent amount of your homemade sauce)
1) Slice “sausage” into 1/2 inch pieces. Fry in an excess amount of olive oil until brown (you should have some extra liquid olive oil in the pan when you’re finished cooking).
2) Add “sausage”, cooking oil, kidney beans, and sauce to the pasta and warm through. Garnish with parmesan cheese and enjoy with a salad!
