Do you shop at a warehouse club, you know Costco, Sam's, BJ's? At my house, we're Costco shoppers. One of the main reasons, their wine selection is fantastic! Of course, a lot of the things you buy are in larger quantities. Perfect if you have a big family. Since it's just Tim and I, sometimes I find myself trying to figure out what to do with something I have in large quantities. This summer we bought a package of kielbasa, perfect for summer grilling. I wanted to find a winter recipe for kielbasa. I found this recipe several months ago, bookmarked it but kept passing it over when planning the weekly menu. Tim's not a big fan of dishes with cooked tomatoes, so I was concerned he wouldn't like this one. With the kielbasa still in the freezer, I decided to give it a try. Tim said he really liked this recipe, the rosemary is delicious with the sausage.
I made the recipe as written below. Next time, I would not use any additional oil to brown the sausage. I would just add a little olive oil, if needed, to the pan before browning the onions or garlic. I used Great Northern Beans but any of those beans or even a mixture, would be delicious!
