Heat the oil in a large pan and squeeze the sausagemeat into the pan in rough meatball shapes – you should get about five meatballs from each sausage. Discard the sausage skins. Fry the meatballs until browned all over, then scoop onto a plate. Add the onion to the pan and cook for about 8 mins until softened, then stir in the garlic and chilli flakes (if using) and cook for a further minute.
Add the remaining ingredients to the pan along with the meatballs and 700ml hot water. Season and stir, then cover and simmer for 8-10 mins until the greens have wilted and the meatballs are cooked through. Add a little more water if you want a soupier consistency. Serve in shallow bowls with crusty bread.
