This is so easy and absolutely delicious. It's even better with nothing but crusty bread to mop it up with.

Good recipe - I liked it but used only one can of butter beans the second time I made it. I like butter beans but felt overwhelmed by them the first time!

I added paprika to the tomato sauce and cooked on low in the slow cooker with the addition of chunks of potato. Added frozen peas and sweetcorn at the end. Complete really tasty meal in one pot.

To bigspottedcat. If you are not going to make the sauce as recommended then you really need to use a pasta sauce that you like. No wonder you didn't like it. Plus I used a little brown sugar and that worked perfectly, as didn't have treacle anyway. But if you use a good pasta sauce I'm sure that will help although the recommend sauce is easy to make. A little time consuming thats all.

I made this with the recommended sauce ( see my comments on that) but I used Italian veggie sausages (USA brand) and served it with the cheesy garlic bread also on this website. Very nice! Even though I'm not vegetarian .....did this as my daughter is. Plus can't get regular butter beans as they always come in some sort of sauce so used navy beans instead. A bit like baked beans but in water instead

No
Firstly ingredients are not clear. I made mine with chopped tomatoes and tomato paste. I really did not like the treacle in it. I think too often people are write to rate a recipe highly. If it is poor, people could not be bothered.

This one went down a storm in our house. Very easy to make and delicious, great to come home to on a cold night. Used 20 sausages and scaled up everything else so had several portions to put in freezer. Served with rice. A winner!

Hi, can anyone tell me how to reheat once frozen and defrosted? I am guessing 30mins in oven?

Really delicious and quick.
I used two cans of butter beans and one can of baked beans which worked really well

Added onions and red lentils to bulk it up. Lovely!
is it wrong to eat it all by yourself? lol

I made a quick sauce with a 400g carton of chopped tomatoes, bay leaf and oregano. Used 1.5 large tins of beans: a mixture of cannellini and kidney beans. Great!

I enjoyed this but I got a bit bored of the butter beans- given that you need 3 tins I'll be using 3 different types of beans next time for some variety. Quick easy and tasty though!
