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.

Really hearty meal and very simple to make. I used cannellini and butter beans instead and they made a good substitute. We had this initially with rice first but the next day we finished it with some crusty bread. Delicious!

I've cooked this twice now and enjoyed it immensely! After all the sausages have gone too, it makes a wonderful 'soup' for lunch at work the next day!! :)

This is so tasty. I made it with 10 sausages, just because thats was how many there were in the pack and found that I only needed two tins of butter beans. I served it with cheesy mash and some lovely herb and mozzarello bread. Yum. Will defo be making again

Made this for my boyfriend who claimed not to like tomato-based sauces. This has converted him! Easy to make and great warm dinner on a cold day
