Bean Stew

Another delicious recipe:

Easy in ready in no time:

Ground Pork Sausage (I  just bought the kind that looks like ground beef, in a meat package, you could substitute frozen meatballs, fresh ground turkey, beef, whatever - the sausage meat balls were REALLY good though and we don't even eat much pork).

Form the meatballs, and brown in the bottom of a large saucepan. While they are browning, peel and slice the carrots, and fennel (I watched a youTube video to see how in the world to cut up a fennel/anice bulb; it's easy as it turns out. Here: When the meatballs are browned on all sides, throw in the veggies, and kind fo toss them around with the meatballs to cook up a bit.

Add 2 cups of Broth (beef or chicken depending on your meatballs), diced tomatoes, and one-two cans of Beans (the recipe called for Canelonni [white] beans, but I used mixed beans). It depends on how much you like beans - we love them, so we used two. Add salt and pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes, to heat through.

Add sliced fresh Basil, to garnish, and a sprig of the fennel tops. Serve with rustic bread.

Hope you likey:)
