4 c. pasta
1/2 c. salted pasta water
4 italian sausages, removed from casings
1 onion, chopped
8 c. swiss chard, chopped (I used spinach)
1/2 c. fresh basil, chopped
1 c. diced tomatoes
1 can navy beans, rinsed and drained
3 cloves of fresh garlic or 3 tsp pickled garlic
red pepper flakes
Mozza cheese
Parm cheese


1. In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute sausages, breaking up with spoon, until browned, about 8 minutes. Stir in garlic and hot pepper flakes; cook for 2 minutes.

2. Add tomatoes, basil, salt and sugar; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in beans.

3. Meanwhile, in large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook pasta until still slightly firm in centre, about 8 minutes. Drain and return to pot reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Add sauce, reserved cooking liquid and Swiss Chard(Spinach); toss to coat. Transfer to 10-cup glass baking dish.

4. Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses; cover with greased foil. Bake in 375F oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until bubbly and browned, about 10 minutes.

Canadian Living is one of my favourite magazines! Growing up my Mom always subscribed to it. We would it yummy things from this magazine all the time! It was so much fun to make this meal with my Sister, and have my family enjoy the meal!
