In a skillet over medium low heat, warm the olive oil.
2
Remove the sausage from the casings and add to the pan, breaking up into chunks with a wooden spoon

Cook the sausage all the way through, until it just starts to brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl and cover to keep moist.

Add the tomatoes and oregano, and continue cooking over low heat until the mixture looks soft and flavorful. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
6
Add the broth and bring it to a boil. Add the beans, sausage, and juices that have accumulated in the bowl; return to a boil and immediately reduce the heat to a simmer
7
Taste and adjust the seasoning. Partially cover and cook gently for 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve warm.
