Smoked Sausage and Beans

Surprisingly, my family LOVED this recipe!

2 medium onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 lb. fully cooked smoked sausage, cut into 1/4 in. slices
3 - 4 cups chicken broth
1 can (15 1/2 oz.) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (16 oz.) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (15 oz.) garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained
5 - 6 bay leaves (I didn't use these.)
1 tsp. minced fresh parsley
1 tsp. ground cumin
Dash hot pepper sauce
Hot cooked rice or pasta.

In a large skillet, saute onions and garlic in oil until tender.  Add sausage; cook and stir until lightly browned.  Add broth, beans, and seasonings. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.  Discard bay leaves. Serve in a bowl over rice or pasta.
