OLD FASHION STYLE GREEN BEANS AND POTATOES

This is a common old-time Midwestern recipe.

1 quart green beans, do not drain
6 to 8 small to medium new potatoes
1/2 lb smoked sausage, cut into 1/2" pieces
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
1 tbsp minced onion, optional

In a 2-quart saucepan, empty the green beans from the jar or can. Wash new potatoes thoroughly but do not peel. Leave small potatoes whole; cut medium ones in half. Place the potatoes over the green beans and season with the salt and pepper. Add the smoked sausage and onion, if using. Cook over medium heat until the potatoes are tender and the juices have cooked down.
