A CookTale

I guess it’s becoming evident that in the last few days my cooking has gone downhill. That’s because I’m cooking for one. Cathie is away having had a surgical procedure that will keep her from the dinner table for a while. A short while I hope. With the combination of grey weather and grey mindset, dinner is raiding the fridge or the freezer. Last evening’s meal was saved by putting it together in a casserole dish and baking it. All in all, it was better than I expected. Use your imagination and try it.


2 Sweet Italian Sausages
1 14 oz can of Cannellini Beans
1 14 oz can of Diced Tomatoes
1/4 cup of Parsley (chopped)
Kosher Salt & Black Pepper
a pinch of Red Pepper Flakes


1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Add the Sausages and bake them, turning occasionally, until they have started to brown, about 20 minutes.

2. Drain the canned Cannellini beans & the diced Tomatoes. Combine them in a large bowl & season with Salt, Pepper & a pinch of Red Pepper Flakes.

3. Place the Beans & Tomatoes in an oven proof casserole dish and top with the Sausages. Place in the hot oven for about 15 to 20 minutes.

4. Plate & add the chopped Parsley.
