Sausage, Tomato, and Bean Stew

This was supposed to be white beans (cannellinis, to be exact), but one of the cans I needed got used in a different dinner last week. This stew is very filling and especially since I added orzo to the recipe.

Sausage, Tomato and White Bean Stew

Serves: 4
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 to 20 minutes

1 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
1 onion, chopped
6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 (15-ounce) cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can basil-, garlic- and oregano-flavored diced tomatoes, drained
3/4 cup orzo, uncooked

In a stockpot over medium heat, crumble sausage and cook until no longer pink. If necessary, drain all but 1 tablespoon fat.

Add onion and saute until softened. Add broth, beans, tomatoes, and orzo and stir to combine. Cover and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
