Quick, simple and tasty. I only used one can of chopped tomatoes and used mixed beans in a spicy, tomato sauce.

It's a long time since i've cooked anything as visually unappealing as this. It looked like slop - everything swimming in the tomato juice. Good for students i suppose but there must be some very easily pleased people out there - either that or i'm not as bad a cook as i thought!!
Would have been a waste of the lincolnshire sausages i was going to use in it - glad i only used veggies - do yourself a favour - give this a miss i'm only giving it a one star in case it won't let me give it none - frankly i'd give it a minus.

I have made this several times with the chipolatas and with vegetarian sausages. Once I accidentally bought mixed beans in tomato sauce so I just left out the sugar. Definitely a family favourite.
