  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups diced green bell pepper (from 2 green bell peppers)
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion (from 1/2 large yellow onion)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 lb mild Italian sausage (ground)
  • 19 ounces canned cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 14.5 ounces canned crushed tomatoes

  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (shredded, for topping)
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil (chopped, for topping)


  • Heat a large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Coat the pan with olive oil. Add in the diced green bell pepper and onion. Sauté until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the minced garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly to make sure the garlic doesn't burn.

  • Add beans and tomatoes. Stir to combine.
  • Sprinkle in the oregano, basil, salt and pepper.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 10-15 minutes, until stew is heated through.
