Sausage and beans with potatoes

I was in a huge hurry putting this together and totally forgot the onions...think it would have helped keep the potatoes white but they did okay anyways and all cooked well.  I think a sauce would have pulled it together even better but I liked this...the kids didn't complain:)

Serving Size  : 4  

1 pound Smoked sausage
6 Potatoes
2 Onions
1 1/2  pounds  Green beans -- fresh

      Peel potatoes and cut into chunks. (Similar to the chunks you would
  place in stew).   Put the potatoes into the bottom of your crockpot.
  Peel and slice the onion and lay onions on top of  potatoes.   Wash and
  prepare the fresh green beans.  Place on top of the  onion.  Add
  approximately 1 cup of water to the crockpot.  Slice the  smoked sausage
  into slices or four large portions and place on top of  green beans.  Turn
  the crockpot on a medium setting and cook all day.   Approximately 8
  hours.  This turns into a delicious one pot meal for a  busy day.

I was going to make this last week and Save A lot didn't have fresh green beans :(

Some days you just can't beat meat and 'taters.

I make a similar dish with cubed potatoes fried in the rendered oil left from sauteing the diced sausage.
