Sausage and White Bean One Pot Stir-fry

I usually buy Polska Kielbasa to make Jambalaya, but I didn’t feel like making that. I wanted something simpler so I looked in my refrigerator and found cabbage and sweet bell peppers. I also had a can of white cannellini beans in my pantry. It sounded like a winning recipe, so I got started.

This makes a mild tasting one pot stir-fry dish. If you want to add some pizzaz to it, provide some hot sauce. It’s a very healthy dish, and of course, you could substitute other sausages, like German or Italian.

    We’re so proud of you. This was just delicious. My husband doesn’t like spicy, but I do. I put a little Tabasco on mine, he had none. We were both happy!
