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!

Tasty, with lovely flavours.

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!

This is such a good, quick meal to cook. I cooked some onions, mushrooms, garlic and chorizo in with it as well which was really nice. I also vary the types of beans I'm adding in to it just to give it extra texture. Even managed to get my partner eating is and he doesn't usually like beans!!

Forgot - I did it in the slow-cooker. After browning sausages, stuck them and the drained tins of butter bans in the pot, covered the lot with the tomato sauce, 3H on medium.

Oh, WOW!!!
Made this with the closest I can get to Cumberland sossies in Finland. Used the tomato sauce as recommended (Girlie wondered why I'd bought 6 tins...)
Didn't change a thing (almost - added a Jamie Oliver 'glug' of Lea and Perrins), but unfortunately my accompaniment ("bubble & Leek cakes") didn't hold together, but still, they were delicious.
I only bought 8 sausages...wish I'd bought 20. This mama will freeze! As we're up to our knees in snow here, I reckon we'll be giving this a shot for a week or so....

Lovely dish. Easy to make, full of flavour and really filling. Good for putting the pot in the middle of the table and having the whole family dip in and serve themselves. Had it with some mini bread rolls warmed up in the oven, good to scoop up the sauce. Added kidney beans to mine as I love them and this worked well. Will definitely make again.

Really lovely, tasty meal - and VERY filling! Made with quorn sausages and finished it off with a bit of thyme. Very good for a wet miserable night.
