Fagioli all'uccelletto

Fagioli all’uccelletto is a dish found throughout Tuscany, and the explanations for the origins of its name—“little bird beans”—are diverse. According to the 19th century cookbook writer Pellegrino Artusi, the name derives from the use of herbs which were traditionally used to season roast fowl: sage and garlic.




8 fresh sausages


5-6 cloves of garlic


10 fresh sage leaves


500gr. tomato puree


one glass of white wine


400gr. cannellini beans boiled, but still al dente


olive oil


salt and pepper for seasoning




Pierce the sausages with a fork and brown them in a pan over high heat for a few minutes. Add the garlic cloves (peeled but whole) and the sage. When the sausages are well browned add the white wine and continue to simmer until the wine has evaporated. Add the tomato puree. Bring to a simmer, stirring gently. Add salt and pepper and cook for another 7-8 minutes. Add the beans and stir until well mixed. Simmer for another 8-10 minutes on low heat, stirring regularly to make sure that the beans do not stick to the bottom. Serve hot.
