Garbanzo Beans with Sausage, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Parsley


  • 2 cups garbanzo beans, drained of any liquid
  • 4 Italian sausages, roasted and sliced (substitute chicken sausage if desired)

  • 1/8 bunch Italian flat leaf parsley, rough chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Cook your garbanzos according to the package’s instructions, or use canned (a 15-ounce can is fine).
