Easy and fast...quantities determined by how many people you are cooking for! polish sausage                                       or kielbasa  onions green beans...fresh, canned  (drain first) or frozen (thaw first)...NOTE: french style do not work well here Score the sausage so when you  brown it in a skillet, the juices will  flow I do this even with the pre-cooked sausage). Add the onions and green beans, and sautee until they have taken in the flavor of the sausage without                    getting limp and overcooked. The juices from the sausage will prevent the green beans from sticking to the pan. This was a meal created in a moment of desperation and it turned out to be a new favorite!
