Salsiccia with Cannellini Beans and Fresh Basil
4 Italian Salsiccia
1 can canned cannellini beans (400g / 14 oz)
1 handful basil
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic
Fry the salsiccia in a pan on medium heat until cooked through. Remove the salsiccia and chop garlic and add to the pan, slowly roast the garlic in the fat that stays in the pan after it’s been fried.
When the garlic starts to brown add the canned beans and a few leafs of basil. Let the beans simmer for about ten minutes. Crush the beans with the backside of a spoon into a rough puré. Season with salt and pepper.
Slice the salsiccia and serve with the beans and a few extra leafs of basil and a few drops of olive oil. Good luck.
