    juniperwoman's Note:

    This is the first Weight Watchers recipe I've used, and, boy, am I glad I did! The stew is SO tasty and easy. Even better, the recipe can be modified according to what you have on hand. For instance, I used spinach instead of broccoli rabe and a small white onion since in the place of the red, and instead of the Italian sausage, I used kielbasa. I also added lots of red pepper flakes and some cayenne, too. So have fun with this recipe! I can hardly wait to hear what you think of it.

    1. 1
      In a stockpot or large nonstick skillet, heat the oil.
    2. 2
      Crumble the sausage into the skillet, and cook, breaking apart with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 8 minutes. (NOTE: If you're using kielbasa, just saute briefly until it browns).
    3. 3
      Add the onion, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper, stirring as needed, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Stir in the broccoli rabe, tomatoes and beans; cook until the broccoli rabe is wilted, about five minutes. (If you're using fresh spinach, it will wilt! I promise.
    5. 5
      Just cover it with the bean and sausage mixture and let it cook for about 5 minutes).
    6. 6
      Top with cheese if desired and serve.

      I don't understand the negative reviews. Paired with a fresh baguette, this is a delicious stew, that is perfect for a simple, clean meal, that is ready to eat within an hour of walking in the door. I used about 10 oz of fresh spinach and about 8 oz of arugula. I also added about two teaspoons of herbs de Provence and a few dashes of cayenne. Not a recipe thats lights off fireworks, but a definite 5 stars for a cold evening. A definite keeper on my never-fail list of recipes.

      This recipe helped me learn that I don't like broccoli rabe. It was on sale at the store and I decided to try it. It gave the whole dish a bitter taste, I would have rather used spinach. The dish was ok, but the tomatoes overwhelm everything else- it is a very plain tomato taste. We didn't keep the leftovers. I made this with kielbasa but it would have been better with italian sausage. I suggest adding some red pepper and italian seasonings or else use pre-seasoned tomatoes or perhaps marinara sauce instead of crushed.

      I used spinach. This was a little bit too strong for me. I'll probably try it again, maybe with less spicey sausage and less tomatoes. babaxter
