Italian Sausage Stew

I love Italian food.  It's so easy to make and tastes so much better than any sauces that are in a jar.

Italian Sausage Stew

1 pound Italian sausage, cooked
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup onion, minced
1 cup chicken broth
14.5 ounces diced tomatoes
19 ounces cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp Italian seasonings
1 tsp parsley
3/4 cup Ziti, Mostaccioli or other medium pasta shape, uncooked
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cook Italian sausage with onion and garlic.  In a medium saucepan, add in chicken broth, diced tomatoes, cannellini beans and spices.  Add in cooked Italian sausage, onion and garlic and cook for a half hour on a medium low heat.  Add in ziti and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
