  2. Mix the breadcrumbs with a little sage. Heat grill to medium. Add 1 tbsp sage and the garlic to the pan. Cook for 1 min, then add the stock and tomatoes. Tuck in the sausages. Simmer for 10 mins until the sauce has reduced a little and the sausages are cooked. Season, stir in the beans, then simmer for 2 mins more. To serve, scatter the sage crumbs over the top and grill for 5 mins until golden.

Will do 1 can of beans next time, other than that this was perfect

This was delicious. I followed tips from others about using cheese in the breadcrumbs and I think it’s well worth doing. I also added a spoon of red lentils to add more veg and thicken up the sauce. We’ll be having this again.

Left out the breadcrumbs and added Worcester sauce, served with sweet potato mash. Will definitely try with cheese next time

Instead of making bread crumbs I cubed 3 granary rolls that need using up, sprinkled a handful of grated cheddar on top and grilled which went down very well with the whole family.

Oh and I would recommend using Sainsburys taste the difference Toulouse sausages, they were scrummy!

Lovely winter comfort food! Added in a red pepper and some mushrooms that needed finishing up for upping the veg content. Used two cans of chopped tomatoes to make sure their was enough juice to cook all the extras I'd added in, and used just one can of cannelloni beans as I felt this was enough. Dash of Worcester sauce and grated Red Leicester cheese mixed with the breadcrumbs, served with mash... Yum!

Absolutely scrummy! Served it with jacket potatoes after a cold really warms you through. This is now one of my most faourite recipes.
