2 tablespoons tightly-packed shredded basil

1 1/2 cups cooked broad white beans

Freshly-grated Parmesan cheese

In a large heavy saucepan heat oil, crumble sausages into small pieces, and saute until it begins to brown. Add garlic and stir well. Add tomato pulp and half of basil, stir well and cook for one minute. Add beans and two cups of tomato liquid. Cook for one minute more, add basil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
