Method

  1. Gently heat the oil in a large pan. Fry the sausages all over until brown, then remove and set aside. Add the onion to the pan and fry for 5-10 mins until golden and soft, then add the celery, garlic and rosemary, and cook for 2 mins more. Pour over the stock and bring to the boil.

  2. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 mins, then add the sausages back to the pan along with the butter beans. Simmer for 8 mins, then stir in the butter, parsley and lemon zest. Ladle into bowls and serve piping hot with lots of chunky bread.

This was fantastic. Quick and easy weeknight dinner. I used Jenni O’s turkey Italian sausage and crumbled it up instead of using links. Next time I will omit the butter to see how big of a difference it makes.

This was fantastic, and better yet easy and quick. I used Jenni O’s spicy Italian turkey sausage and crumbled it up instead of using links. I used the butter, but I don’t think it needed it and will leave it out next time.
