What's Your best sausage/beans recipe

Tonight was an easy night for us. We had a big pot of sausage and Pinto beans with Buttered sweet cornbread. It was filling and wholesome. Do you have a favorite recipe that you would like to share?

Cassoulet.

Are many variations. Usually use Julia's, often with a few variations, but there are many other more simple approaches.

Course also like to saute some onions and kielbasa-type susage. Add some cans of pork and beans, or other beans, a tad of liquid smoke (OK, rarely use it but find it helps here), some brown sugar, a bit of vinegar, maybe some dry mustard, a tad of hot sauce, maybe some catsup, and I don't know what else, I never make it the same way twice.

And here is a really simple one:

Jeannie's Beanies

2 cans Ranch Style Beans

2 Tsp. Chili Powder (or to taste), or hot chili sauce

12 oz Longhorn Cheese shredded (you can use more)

2 Tbs minced onion (you can use more)

2-3 handfuls of Fritos

Mix, place in casseroles dish

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes

Very simple, but it seems to work.

You can get a 15 bean mix that makes a wonderful sort of minestrone. Soak the beans, add some celery and onion and a can of tomatoes. Season with herbs. Cook until the beans are tender or near tender. Add cut up smoked sausage and finish. I have gotten a pressure cooker which makes this a 20 minute meal.
Another really good dish to include sausage in is split pea or lentil soups.

How about red beans and rice?

http://www.cajun-recipes.com/html/jambalaya/40981.htm

Gretchen, I make my minestrone the way you do, with the addition of chicken, carrots, a few potatoes, Italian green beans, cabbage, broken spaghetti, then finish it off with pesto. I serve it with a bit of grated parmesan on top.

When I start throwing things in my big soup pot, I can't seem to stop until it's filled up.
