How To Make Pasta with Italian Chicken Sausage and Beans
A bowl of garlicky Italian chicken sausage pasta with white cannellini beans, crushed red pepper, and grated cheese – no words to describe but yum!
Rinse escarole and tear into bite sized pieces.
Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente in a large pot of salted water. Reserve ½ cup of water before draining.
While pasta water boils, heat a large non-stick skillet on medium heat.
Add olive oil; when hot add onions, garlic, salt, and pepper for about 4 to 5 minutes until soft.
Add sausage, breaking up with a wooden spoon then cook for about 6 to 8 minutes until golden. Set aside in a dish.
Add chicken broth and beans to the skillet.
Add the escarole; stir and cook for about 4 minutes or until wilted.
Gently stir in sausage, pasta, red pepper flakes, ½ cup of the reserved water or more if needed, and grated Parmesan. Adjust salt and pepper if needed and toss well; transfer to a large serving bowl. Enjoy with some extra cheese on the side.
