  1. Prepare spare ribs by removing the rind and excess fat. Cut each spare rib into three thick chunks. Cut the sausages in half.
  2. Put the ribs, sausages, shallots, carrot, celery and garlic in the slow cooker. Sprinkle over the paprika and tuck in the rosemary sprig (or sprinkle over the dried rosemary). Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Combine tomato paste with the tomatoes and wine and pour over the meat and vegetables. Stir in the white beans.
  4. Cook on low for 68 hours, or until the meat is tender. Remove the rosemary sprig and stir through the parsley. Serve with crusty bread.
