There are a few days in the year when I have no idea what to make with certain foods. I like to use everything in my pantry and not waste any. Each year during the canned food drives I absolutely dread giving them what we don't use. But I always do put in Ranch Style Beans and other cans like spinach, artichokes and beets! I don't cook them much because I don't know what to pair with it.
Today, I told my husband I'm going to use the Ranch Style Beans! He said okay, he likes them. I never ate them much when I was younger.
So I opened the fridge and I saw sausage... I thought to myself that beans and sausage go together, don't they? So I made this concaulktion and it came out pretty good. I would take a picture but we finished it all!
I'm calling it The Odd Can Recipe! Here's the recipe
1lb sausage (links or dogs), sliced
1 cup shells (pasta)
1 can stewed, dice tomatoes (mexican or italian seasoned)
1 can corn
2 1/4 cup water
1 tlbs beef bullion seasoning
1. Heat pan and add sausage. Keep heat on high. No need for oil.
2. Add shells, stirring occasionally. While they get some color on them open the cans and get your water and seasoning ready.
3. Add tomatoes, water and seasoning, stirring to mix and dissolve seasoning.
4. Let it come to a boil and then simmer about 12 minutes with a cover.
5. Pour beans into another pot and add corn to the sausage mix and simmer another 5 minutes.
6. All done, serve with warm tortillas or bread.
Note: You can mix in the beans, I did that when I reheated and it tasted better and added a thickness to it.
This is a great pantry recipe and it's very cost friendly and frugal. I can estimate that it cost about $4-5 depending on the brand of sausage you use. And everything, can, paper and plastic are recyclable.
So give it a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
