Method

  1. Heat half the oil in a large casserole dish, then brown the sausages all over. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the remaining oil, tip the veg into the dish and fry for 10 mins. Stir in the tomato purée and cook for 1 min more.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Return the sausages to the pan with the beans, thyme and some seasoning, then pour in the stock and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat, sprinkle over the breadcrumbs, then bake in the oven for 25-30 mins until the crumbs are golden and the stew is bubbling.

I made this for two - one big carrot, no leeks, a 400g tin of butter beans.
Also gluten free stock and bread. Lovely!

Loved this although made one or two adjustments.
Because I had some Charlotte potatoes left I added those at the vegetables frying stage, and not particularly liking thin sauces added 150g of prepared red lentils to thicken, and upped the stock to 300ml. All in all I was pleased to say it was a great success with the family. Great comfort food and so easy to do ........ Enjoy

Ooh, I also added a tiny bit of brown sugar, mainly because I'd added extra tomato puree and didn't want it to be too sharp.

A great dish! I didn't include baked beans so just added more tomato puree and stock. Dried thyme was fine instead of fresh and I only used one carrot and one stick of celery as they aren't favourites of mine. I don't really see the point of the breadcrumbs but if I was going to use them I'd probably add something (cheese?) to make it more of a substantial topping. Really tasty and the butterbeans were divine!

Success! One of best mains made. Added extra tom paste, cannelloni beans instead of butter beans and added 1/2 tsp brown sugar

So nice! I added extra liquid and just simmered on the hob to make a nice one-pot casserole.

Straight into my folder of favourites. Really tasty and dead easy. Didn't bother with breadcrumbs. My tips are to use the best and tastiest sausages you can (I used locally made herby ones) and real stock if you have it. Yum

Really enjoyed this recipe exactly as instructed, but, might add a little more liquid next time as we love to mop up all the lovely juices with some crusty bread.

Really tasty-I used Toulouse style sausages and they were delicious. I also added new potatoes and slightly more stock than the recipe stated to make it a complete one pot meal.

I cooked it for 2 people and used one tin of curried mixed beans which added a little zing. Easy and tasty.

SCRUMPTIOUS!! Seriously easy to make. I didn't bother with breadcrumbs, just served it with wholegrain rice. The veg & bean casserole part was delicious! My 11 year old had three helpings - need I really say any more? :-)

Delicious!! So tasty, a great midweek supper with minimal effort, would suggest a bit longer on the hob though my veg was ever so slightly crunchy, otherwise beautiful!

This is an absolute winner, and it freezes well too. Delicious, just as it is.

Made this using finest sausages, with tomato and basil, it was really yummy, my husband wasnt too keen on all the beans but i loved them, as did my 5 year old daughter, the breadcrumb topping gave the dish a real rustic style, i froze leftover's and saved a bowl of just the beans for the next day, which is a meal in itself, would most definately make again, maybe change the sausage flavour.

Really lovely but again we didn't use the baked beans, used a can of mixed beans instead and added extra tomato.

Good midweek meal but wouldn't rush to make it again. Served with crusty bread.
