Tomato, Sausage and Bean Pasta

"This is a fulfilling pasta dish that is great to "whip-up" after work or a busy day. Use any flavour sausages you like, I sometimes use two different flavours for variety. Serve with hot herb bread. A Woman's Day recipe."

  1. I liked the butter beans the best.
  2. This made for a great mid-week meal. I prepared it all in the morning and then just reheated it when I got home at night. Both my 3 and 6 year olds loved it with the 3 year old eating a huge bowl full. Excellent family eating.
  3. A rich, hearty dish. This is great comfort food. I used vegetarian sausage. I loved the garlic, rosemary and italian season flavors together.
  4. I hate to give poor reviews for dishes and rarely do. But, this dish has no flavor and everyone declined to eat. :-( My husband described it by saying it was so bland that you taste the starchiness of the pasta. I think the combination of cream, butter beans and pasta were too overpowering. Also, 1 tsp of sugar and rosemary are not enough to flavor the dish. I desparately tried to liven it up with no avail. You just couldn't break up the bland creaminess of the ingredients... it tasted chalky. Sorry.
