Sausage w/String Beans (M, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 2 as a main dish

2 hot Italian beef sausages
3/4 to 1 pound fresh string beans
Approximately 12 ounces Italian style tomato sauce
Onion, thinly sliced (optional)
Mushrooms, chunked (optional)
Fresh basil leaves (optional but good)

Defat the sausage by pricking holes in it and microwaving it 1-1/2 to 3 minutes. (If frozen, use the longer time). Pour off the fat that is rendered from the sausages and wipe them down with a paper towel. Slice thickly and brown in a non-stick pan.

Wash and remove tips from the string beans and microwave them until crisp-tender. Add sausage slices and tomato sauce and other ingredients, if using. If you like you could soft sauté the onions and mushrooms. Cover and microwave at full power for about 2 minutes and serve.

Poster's Notes:
This makes a lovely spicy dish that doesn't heat up the kitchen and is very low carb. I am sure that, if you don't like spicy, you could use sweet Italian beef sausage. I would not make this with frankfurters as the taste combination would be all wrong.
