- Bring the mixture to a boil.
- Add the sausage rounds.
- Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Add the beans & pasta & cook, stirring often, until the pasta is done, ~ 10 minutes.
- Season to taste with salt & pepper, remembering that the sausage may be salty.

- PS: You can prepare this ahead of time, stopping before adding the beans & pasta; add those & the rest of the ingredients shortly before serving.
