I am trying to lose some weight again for the thousandth time in my life, and I came up with this recipe because of the low-fat, high-fiber, fresh ingredients. The beans, pasta, and kale are an unusual mixture, but don't hesitate to give it a try. My one and only raised eyebrows when he discovered it was healthy for him. A definite keeper, as he went back for seconds.

  • Meanwhile, heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brown sausage, about 5 minutes. Transfer sausage to a bowl. Add olive oil to coat the bottom of the skillet. Add onion and garlic; cook about 5 minutes. Stir in crushed tomatoes and vegetable stock. Add thyme, oregano, and basil. Return sausage to the skillet, cover, and simmer 15 minutes.

  • Add kale and cannellini beans to the skillet. Simmer, uncovered, until sauce is thickened, about 15 minutes more. Plate drained pasta and add sauce. Top with desired amount of Parmesan cheese.
