  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Cook the onion and sausages over a fairly high heat for 8-10 mins, turning the sausages often so they brown all over.
  2. Add the garlic to the pan with the kidney beans and their sauce. Half-fill one of the cans with water, swirl and then add this to the pan. Stir everything together and bring to the boil. Turn down to simmer and cook for 10 mins, or until the sausages are cooked through. Season and sprinkle with the parsley.

Used Thyme instead of parsley and added a splash of Worcestershire sauce and some chilli powder to the sausages and onions before the beans went in. It was absolutely delicious, not what I was expecting. We had it with Cous Cous and it went really well! Only thing is even with the chilli powder I wouldn't call this dish spicy.

Delicious meal, goes well with mash. Added a teaspoon of chipotle paste for extra smokiness and my OH was asking for more! Very easy to make and can add any veg to it too

I love this. So quick and easy for after work when I'm tired or pushed for time. Easy to cut down for one if on my own, or cook the lot and freeze off the remainder. So tasty. And you can add what you like - mushrooms and carrots are fab. Enjoy with mash...mmmm

Simple and tasty mid-week meal. The quick browning of the sausages is best done before adding the onions as they brown (burn!) too quickly. Lovely with added mushrooms or/and courgettes. Freezes well if you have left overs.

This is a wonderfully warming winter dish and so easy. I added some tomato puree and some Worcester sauce for more depth of flavour. A real kick from the beans. Served it with the Sticky Potato Wedges on page 111 of the March issue. Hubby loved it and I will definitely make it again. Very filling :-)
