Cannellini and Italian Sausage Stew

“This is just pure delicious! What comes to mind is a big bowl of this and a loaf of crusty Italian bread! No more, no less! I like to make this for Monday Night Football,(when I make it in the late fall and winter), and invite 2 or 3 couples. Some bring bread, some bring dessert, but we all get full! This doubles and triples easily, and you can add your own touches to it.”
