Cannellini Bean and Soy Sausage Gratin

We eat this as a one dish meal but I've also taken it as a side dish to my parents. My dad and uncle gobble it up!
I use Tofurky Italian Sausage and cut it up into small pieces.

Cannellini Bean and Soy Sausage Gratin

3 T. olive oil
4 Italian Soy - Tofurkey sausages cut into small pieces
1 small bulb fennel, chopped
1 small onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. chopped sage
1 bunch Swiss chard, stems removed, chopped
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 15-oz. cans cannellini beans, drained
1/2 t. kosher salt
1/2 t. ground black pepper
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/3 soy parmesan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 8x10 baking dish with oil.

In large skillet, over medium heat, cook the sausage slices until brown. Remove and set aside.

Add the fennel and onion to skillet and cook approximately 5 min. Stir in the garlic and sage, cook 1 min. longer. Add the Swiss chard, a handful at a time, stirring until slightly wilted. Stir in the broth, beans, sausage, salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture into the baking dish and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the bread crumbs and Soy Parm. with the remaining olive oil.
Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture on top and bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Serve warm.
