Roasted Chicken Sausage and White Beans with Tomatoes
Roasting sausage in a healthy alternative to frying without losing the wonderful taste of the spices in the sausage. For a hearty healthy one dish meal I place fiber filled white beans in a baking dish, then add sausage topping with simmered tomatoes, shallots, garlic, olives, capers, herbs and anchovies. The anchovies are optional but these little fishes added a little zing to the tomato sauce.
