This is a quick dinner I cooked in between a couple of projects I was in the middle of.
Work a little, cook a little. Some days are just like that.
I had some whole wheat fettuccine, not much but enough for a couple of meals, and I had some Italian sausage in the freezer. I don't care for whole wheat fettuccine cooked al dente, it's just too undercooked for me. It's o.k. for ww spaghetti but to my taste not fettuccine, so I cooked the heck out of it.
While the pasta was cooking I drained and rinsed some canned white
kidney beans. I love pasta and beans together, go figure ;-) and I got
out a bottle of white wine I picked up at Trader Joe's a while ago.
I thought it looked interesting. It is very, very good and I'm getting more.
The sausages were removed from their casings and browned with a little olive oil.
Once the sausage was browned the pan was deglazed with some of the white wine.
Then the beans were added to warm up a little
While all this was going on, the wine glass was being chilled
Some Italian parsley was roughly chopped to top the final dish
None of this needs to be "babysat" so it's great for when you are busy but want a nice meal.
