I know it's a dumb title, and it's not even really a casserole! But what else do you title a one-skillet meal like this other than just listing all the ingredients? I could have called it Sausage, Kale, Beans, and Tomatoes. But that's so boring you'd fall asleep before you get through the whole title.
I used vegetarian sausage (Tofurky brand Italian style) but you can use real meat or omit it totally. There's plenty of protein with the beans so the sausage is really not necessary - but this week who cares about what is necessary? This tastes really good, and it's quite healthy so that's all that matters. And what a great way to remind yourself that you don't have to wait until next week to begin your healthy habits...you can start now and not feel like you are giving up anything delicious!
Christmas Colors Casserole
Vegetarian sausage, sliced
1 bunch tuscan kale, stems removed and chopped
1 can white beans, drained
1 can diced tomatoes (I used leftover spicy tomatoes from yesterday's baked shrimp and tomatoes, or you could totally use leftover frozen roasted tomatoes from last fall)
In a nonstick skillet, heat the sausage until it browns, add the kale, beans, and tomatoes and some salt and pepper. Cover and cook for a few minutes until kale wilts.
Ho ho ho!
