A warming one-pot meal perfect for winter evenings. The sausages go well with the tender beans and rich tomato sauce to make a hearty family meal.
- 12 good quality sausages, any flavour (use two packets of six)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 x 300g pots fresh tomato and herb sauce
- 540g jar large butter beans, rinsed and drained
- Freshly chopped herbs, to garnish
Put the sausages and onion in a pan and cook until the sausages are beginning to brown, turning them occasionally.
Stir in the sauce. Fill one pot with water and add to the pan. Bring the mixture to the boil, then simmer for 20 mins.
Add the drained beans and simmer for a further 5-10 mins or until the beans are heated through, the sausages are cooked and the sauce is the required consistency. Garnish with herbs.
