Sweet grape tomatoes, peppery arugula, and creamy goat cheese get tossed with spicy chicken sausage, pasta, and cannellini beans for a flavor packed treat.
This recipe was used by a chef I worked for and still enjoy feeding to my crew at home. This was served as a side dish for a Mardi Gras feast. You can also make this for vegetarian by omitting the bacon. A little of the favor is missing, but it still has a kick.
This recipe is from my Grandmother’s cookbook she made to pass to all her grandchildren. They come out very, very crisp with a wonderful dill flavor. The red pepper flakes give them a nice punch. They are much better than the recipes that call for cooking the beans first.
Flavorful refried beans seasoned with garlic, jalapeno, and cumin are simple to make when cooked in a slow cooker.
