A bit bland- I seasoned with black pepper and added a little parmesan- really just a little- and this improved it miles! We enjoyed it. Without the pepper and parmesan we may have found it a bit boring

Yum yum. Lovely, hearty recipe with a great sauce that can be used for other things i.e. pasta. This recipe works fantastic with veggie sausages too! I substituted 8 ordinary sausages with veggie ones after defrosting them in the fridge overnight (sometimes frozen veggie sausages can be cheaper than those in the fridge section of the supermarket). I cut them up into small chunks and stirred them into the hot pot to allow for portion freezing. I also swapped butter beans for black beans and it still tasted great.

Loved this recipe. I made the suggested sauce and used Linda McCartney sausages (they are the more meaty textured of the veggie sausages I think) as I don't eat meat, and it was delicious. I only used two cans of butter beans having read the below comments. Will definitely make again, I served with brown rice and some roasted butternut squash which complimented it well.

This is a really lovely recipe! I only used 1 can of butter beans and 1 can of baked beans instead of 3 butter bean cans having read the comments and it worked a treat! Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an easy midweek family meal!

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.
