Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pkg mild Italian sausages, casings removed and meat crumbled
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 pkg sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1 can sodium-reduced white kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard, trimmed, blanched and chopped
  • 1 tbsp prepared basil pesto
  • 1 fresh red finger chile, seeded and sliced into rings (optional)

Method


  1. Heat oil in large saucepan set over medium-high heat. Add sausage, onions, red pepper and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 8 min. or until meat is browned and vegetables soften. Drain excess fat from saucepan.
  2. Add broth and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in blanched chard. Simmer for 10 min. or until chard stems are tender. Stir in pesto and serve with chilies, if desired.
