suzie's version of franks 'n beans.

to quote my 32 year old sister, "yummalicious!"  this is a delicious rendition of the played-out franks 'n beans and so much more feeling.  this is a man's meal :)

the top secret, easy-peasy recipe:

1 14 oz package of sausage (i used a hillshire lite sausage link)
1 15 oz can kidney beans (drained)
1 15 oz can of chickpeas (undrained)
1/2 box of your favorite pasta (i used penne)
2 tb of BBQ spice
2 tb brown sugar
1/4 molasses or syrup
1 minced onion (optional - cook this first if used)
1 cup ketchup

brown sausage in frying pan.  in a pot, combine all other ingredients, add sausage when browned (should only take about 5-10 minutes); bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes.

serve over pasta.  i served it with cornbread (prepackaged)  - SO GOOD!

this is about 4 servings.
