Introduction

White beans, sausage, and pasta make for a classic Italian combination. This quick and easy weeknight meal is delicious and healthy; perfect for a family on the go. Smoked turkey sausage is a great alternative to fattier pork sausage, yet has plenty of savory flavor. Adding a couple of handfuls of fresh basil to the dish gives it great flavor and aroma. A sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan or Asiago is the perfect salty finish to a great family dinner. White beans, sausage, and pasta make for a classic Italian combination.
