Sweet Italian Sausage Succotash

Succotash is a dish with a lot of history! First introduced in New England by the Native Americans, succotash is known for being rich in nutrients like amino acids. Our take on the American classic involves cooking our hearty Italian sausage to brown perfection, and mixing it into a bed of fresh vegetables. Surprise – instead of the usual lima beans, we’ve substituted that pop of green with delicious, protein-rich edamame!
