  1. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof pan, add the sausages and brown for few mins. Remove from the pan. Add the leeks and carrot and gently soften for 10 mins.

  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.

Great winter mid-week meal. Tasted very fresh. Lovely with the sausages.

Makes an easy midweek meal. Only used 1 can of beans. And one onion and one leek.

Very tasty. I used some good quality chipolatas as I find they tend to cook better.

Very easy to make, great for a midweek meal. I added cheese on top too but that's because I'm a cheese addict!

Made this in France with Toulouse sausages bought in the region. I made it for 6 people and we all loved it! Very easy recipe which I cooked in the oven at the simmer stage, not on top.

This was nice and easy.....think next time I may spice it up a little with some chilli powder to give it a little more flavour but nice mid week meal
