I had some meatballs in the freezer and used them instead of the sausage. It was excellent, especially as the meatballs themselves had been a tad disappointing first time around. This cheered them up no end.

Tres Bon....quick, simple and bursting with flavour. Have some sauce leftover which will add some chorizo to make a hearty soup.

Very simple and tasty. I found it filling even without the garlic bread. Ideal for one living alone as it is one pot cooking and enough over to freeze for another day. Will definitely be on the menu again.

This was an ok recipe but not enough depth of flavour. Probably won't make again.

This was really truly tasty! Simple, cheap and store cupboard stuff. Thankyou! Will certainly be making again and poss swap sausages for chicken.

Jooles, A splash of wine or small glass of water would be fine as extra liquid.

A message for Jooles, Kidney beans are OK to use, tip them into a fine sieve or colander to rinse off the water/juice ( I run then under water from the tap) no, don't use the juice they are in... once rinsed, tip them into the casserole. Hope I've explain myself clearly... enjoy.

I wonder if it would be OK to use Kidney beans in this as my OH isnt keen on the Cannellini beans (Im OK with them) Its the juice im concerned mostly about as i don't think it would be possible to use the juice. Unless i just added a bit more stock or a splash of white wine maybe....
