Sausage and Red Bean Stew

"Hearty, delicious and quick. Yes, this does use several canned products and also gets a head start with prepared soup. But there are times, at least in my home, when speed and convenience must take precedence. This recipe originated from Honeysuckle White so, of course, it calls for Italian turkey sausage. I have made it with turkey sausage and with regular Italian sausage--it is good either way. Also, feel free to substitute beans according to preference or what is on hand. I often use cannellini beans rather than red kidney beans."

    What liquid should I use? The only liquid I see is 15oz of minestrone soup. Can I also add chicken stock? If so, how much?

    Would adding ground Turkey along with the Turkey sausage work well?

    Can you use drained black beans?

    I like hearty, robust flavors. For this dish I used "bold" chicken sausage (no turkey links available). I also like keeping salt to a minimum, finding that many canned items contain way too much sodium. So I used low-salt, no salt, or no salt added ingredients. The next time I make this (yes, there will be a next time!), I think I'll use fresh tomatoes and dice them myself. I also don't have a 6-qt. stockpot. I thought an 8-qt. would be too large and 4-qt. too small. Instead, I used a tall pot I use for cooking pasta. It worked, but the next time I'll use the 8-qt., as there's more surface area to cook the sausage and onions.
