Consider adding mushrooms instead of the sausage to give it a meaty texture (we recommend using portabella mushrooms.
Consider adding lemon juice to make the flavors pop and add to add some freshness. For a “creamy” texture, add in Dijon mustard which all also add some zing to the dish. And for a crispy outer later, add top the dish with Parmesan cheese which will provide a subtle crunch to the dish.
Although you can use canned green beans, we highly recommend using fresh green beans. No need to blanch them first. The green beans are added at the second half of the cooking process. The fresh green beans will come out nice al dente bite and vibrant green.

- We highly recommend cutting the potatoes and sausages to similar sizes. That way, this will help them cook faster and evenly.
- Best to use fresh green beans. Frozen or canned green beans will not give you an al dente texture and may cause your dish to be mushy or wet.
- Toss Occasionally. As the dish cooks, be sure to toss the potatoes and sausages occasionally so that way you do not end up with uncooked ingredients.
