For avoidance of doubt, definitely brown the sausages first. That way you will know they are cooked. Especially of you are feeding anyone who is pregnant. Otherwise, a great recipe that I'll be using again.

Very tasty but easy to make. I used carrots rather than leeks. For 2 people I used 6 pork sausages, no chorizos and a tin of cannelini beans. I will definitely be doing this again.

Very easy but tasted fantastic! For 2 people I used 6 pork sausages and a tin of cannelini beans. I will definitely be doing this again.

This was really good and so simple to make! I only had kidney beans, but they worked as well. Tonight we'll have theleftovers (my bofriend will have the sausages, (I used six small ones and 200 g chorizo sausage) and I will have the sauce with fish). With pasta, yesterday we had mashed potatoes with it.

I love the taste, so easy to make and it is now a part of the regular weekly menu. It's delicious. I have also tried, using baked beans instead and it's still great.

Ok so I found this to be a great base for a sausage and bean casserole. I added a leak with the onion. while the onion, leak, celery and peppers were cooking I fried off my sausage. Added the spices and also used chilli to give it a kick. I also left out the white wine and used liquid stock. This is were I made the biggest addition, I added potato, carrot, green beans and zucchini ( courgettes ). I found this to be a great winter dish with some pasta, rice or creamy mash.

LEEK! Leak is what you get when there is a faulty washer on your tap! Sorry - I know I'm a f*nny, but things like this drive me crazy!

I grilled the sausages while I fried the veg. Other changes: a chorizo ring (couldn't get the uncooked stuff), a can of mixed beans, fresh thyme only, red wine and hot smoked paprika (all just what I had in). Served with roast potatoes and plain microwaved veg. Great family dinner - loads of flavour.

Good weekday supper. Like another reviewer, I left out the dried thyme and added leaves from fresh, as well as sprigs. I cooked fewer sausages but kept rest the same, and added a very soft poached egg, and some cous cous on side. First time I made this I found it hard to get any colour on the sausages with all the veg in the pan, so this time I gave them a few mins on high first, then added veg.
