Italian Sausage and White Beans

1 lb DLM Storemade Pork Italian Sausage
1 Tbsp Vera Jane's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1½ cups coarsely chopped onions
1 large red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
3 cups drained, cooked white beans, such as cannellini, rinsed
1 cup dry white wine
2 tsp dried thyme
Arugula, optional

Cut the sausages in 1-inch lengths. Place them in a large skillet with a lid, add 1/4 cup water, and cook covered over low heat for 5 minutes. Uncover, raise the heat to medium, and cook until the sausages are browned outside and no longer pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain fat and keep the sausages warm.

Sauté the onion and pepper in oil until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, wine, and thyme. Raise the heat to high and cook until most of the wine is absorbed, 3-5 minutes. Add sausage and warm thoroughly. Spread arugula over the serving platter and top with bean mixture. Makes 4 servings
