Chicken, Sausage, Potatoes, and White Beans

I decided to make dinner last night for today because I didn't get home until 7:30 from work.  I also chose something that gets better as leftovers, my mom's chicken, sausage, potatoes, and beans in red sauce recipe.  First I browned the sausage and chicken in a pan.

Layered sausage and chicken
After that I steamed the potatoes until they were almost done and put those on top of the chicken.  Then I put a can of white beans on top of the potatoes.  

Addition of potatoes and beans
I only had Hunts canned sauce, so after I added a bunch of garlic powder and some Italian seasonings, I added a can a half of the sauce to the top of the casserole dish. 

Almost done!
After that, I baked it for an hour and let the flavors marry until the next day!
