Here is a quick and easy one pot meal that’s full of healthy, colorful vegetables. This recipe could not be simpler. I just added Cannellini beans and fresh green beans to a classic sausage and peppers recipe. It makes a delicious little sausage and peppers bowl that’s surprisingly healthy, especially if made with turkey sausage. I used sweet Italian sausage, but you can use spicy if you like. You could serve this with pasta, but since it is so hearty on it’s own, I simply served it in a bowl with crusty bread and olive oil infused with herbs for dipping.
