Besides all that, it's a great easy recipe, and REALLY budget friendly. Which in my book makes it even better. I wish I could remember where I found it, but it's been so long. The recipe itself says to serve over rice, but we never do. B/C it's usually enough by itself with a salad.
Sausage and 3 Bean Bake (makes 8 servings)
WW pts: 7 pts a serving
1-2 links of Kielbasa (I used smoked Turkey sausage by Erich this time)
1 onion, diced
1- 15 oz can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
1- 15 oz can low sodium pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1- 15 oz can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup water
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp spicy brown mustard
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat the Oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with PAM. Slice kielbasa and onion. Then saute in a pan until the onions are slightly caramelized. Add beans to pan. Mix water, ketchup, mustard and brown sugar together. Pour mixture into beans, kielbasa mix. Stir together.
Then pour whole mixture into the baking pan, sprinkle with cheese and bake 30-45 minutes.
Remove it from oven and let stand for 5-10 minutes, so the sauce will thicken.
This recipe is usually better the next day, b/c the sauce will thicken up even more and just makes it yummier.
