Chicken-Sausage and Bean Casserole with Sage

In this recipe from reader Robert Estep of East Haddam, Connecticut, sage-infused olive oil complements the beans and sausage, and the fried leaves make the crunchy breadcrumb topping even crunchier.

    I really liked this recipe. Except I changed it a little: I threw in a carton of frozen creamed spinach, didn't drain the beans entirely, threw in a handful of the bread crumbs and mixed them in, and added parmesan cheese. It wasn't dry at all. LittleJeanne: the oil was either too hot or you left the sage in too long. The leaves don't really look 'fried' but they are crunchy when you pull them out and let them dry.

      Just tried the recipe and liked the flavors: I used cooked chicken sausage, sliced and sautéed with the onions. I will resist turning this into a creamed casserole, but agree it needs something else. You really need to cook the mixture in the pan so the cannellini can break down. Also, I might try a little condensed chicken broth instead of adding cheeses or cream-based soups. A little help with the fried sage would have been nice; I didn't have the picture in front of me and the recipe neglects to tell you how to add it back, so I crumbled it and added to the mixture before placing in the 13x9" pan. Worth trying again!

    I must have done something wrong, but my sage leaves didn't really fry, they turned out brown/almost black and they were uneatable... Could someone help me by telling me how to do it right? Anyway I just skipped the last step and threw them away, and the rest of the meal was good!

    This was awful! I made it for a get-together and I was so embarassed to serve it to guests. Thankfully everyone could laugh about how bad it was, but it was way too dry. Will NOT be making this one again.
