This recipe makes a great sauce for pasta or can be served as a bean stew. It is quick and easy to make.
Brown the sausage or ground turkey. If using ground turkey, I find that I need to add one to two tablespoons of olive oil when browning the meat. Add chopped onion and continue cooking until the onion is soft and translucent. At this point you may add the optional extra garlic.
Add the white beans and canned tomatoes (including liquid). I also add the oregano at this point.
Cover and simmer on low for 30 to 45 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. I cook my stew/sauce in a cast iron pot.
Now it is ready to serve over pasta or alone as stew, with a green salad and some crusty bread to finish the meal.
This sauce improves with time so it is also great as leftovers the next day.
