Here’s an easy, tasty, satisfying stew to make the night before or early in the morning.
Cooks appreciate the convenience of beans from a can and pasta sauce from a jar, plus it’s full of flavor and nutrition. The beans add some healthy fiber.
To keep the salt level low, look for a different low-sodium sausage. Low-sodium Italian chicken sausage would work in this recipe.
Cut more salt with the pasta sauce. Amy’s and some other companies make lower sodium versions you can try.
Serve with a spinach or other dark green salad and some roasted winter squash. Or serve on top of a baked sweet potato.
Presto: you have a meal that’s as good for you and your family as it is colorful.
