The following recipe can't exactly be called quick, after all, it needs to simmer for 45 minutes, but it is certainly easy. It comes together in a snap, then, if you are like me, you can clean your much neglected house while it simmers.
Kielbasa Skillet Stew
5 bacon strips (today I used peppered because it is what I had, usually I don't though)
1-11/2 lb. smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
2-15 oz. cans Great Northern Beans, undrained
15 oz. tomato sauce
4 oz. chopped green chilies
2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
1/2 medium green pepper, chopped
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/8 tsp. black pepper
In a 12 inch skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towel to drain. Cook sausage and onions in drippings over medium heat until onion is tender; drain.
Stir in remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 45 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Crumble bacon, sprinkle over stew.
