How to make Premio Sweet Chicken Sausage with White Beans, Roasted Vegetables and Polenta:

2. In the meantime, brown and cook Premio Sausage according to package instructions, stirring frequently to brown on all sides. Remove from heat and reserve.
3. In the same pan, sauté chopped onions and garlic, covered, until soft. Add anchovy and tomato pastes; cook for 5 minutes. Add wine and simmer until reduced by ½. Add beans, with their juice; mix well and season with salt and plenty of black pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes and reserve.
4. Combine the roasted vegetables with the sausage and any juices. Toss with chopped fresh herbs. Heat through if the vegetables took too long in the oven.
