Absolutely brilliant! Made a few changes, an orange pepper instead of red and a red onion, also used Haricot beans instead of Cannellini beans, but they were so lovely! Served with a jacket spud and sausages. Will definitely be making again.

Did 2 x quantity for party of 12 last night for fireworks. Yum yum yum. Will be making again just for us for supper!! Did use hot chill powder rather than mild to give it a bit of a kick. Delicious and so easy.

tried this but had to use the oven for convenience (cooking for a crowd) - so placed it all in an oblong glazed roasting dish and spread thin cut streakey bacon on top. The smokey flavour of the bacon really enhanced the beans.
