Method

  1. Put the oil in a large, heatproof casserole dish over a medium heat and add the onion, cooking for 5 mins until starting to soften. Tip in the garlic, celery and peppers, and give everything a good stir. Cook for 5 mins more. 

  2. Turn the heat to high and add the sausages. Cook for a few mins until browned all over, then reduce the heat to medium, sprinkle in the spices and season well. Pour over the tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Cover and continue simmering gently for 40 mins, stirring every now and then.

  3. Heat the grill to high and uncover the casserole. Add the beans and spinach, and stir to warm through. Scatter over the breadcrumbs and grill for 2-3 mins until golden and crisp.

This is a delicious warming recipe absolutely perfect while snowed in! I would definitely brown the sausages first for more flavour/colour but didn't bother with the breadcrumb topping (scattered parsley instead). Great with sliced roast potatoes or crusty bread. Well worth making ahead as seems to improve reheated after a day or two. Winter winner.

Very happy with this recipe we all enjoyed including my 2 year old. I did brown the sausages before hand as others had mentioned which I have to agree with. Also added an extra half can of tomatoes as looked like it was drying up a bit too much for my preference. So I would recommend having a extra tin in the cupboard just in case u need it.

Enjoyed this. I did have to up the seasoning though; added more of the paprika and cumin. Also added a fair bit of salt and pepper. Mixed in some fresh basil. Very tasty. Agree with some of he comments that cutting the sausages into 2-4 pieces may help with portioning this.

So smoky, so sweet. I could have eaten it all over again. Perfect for a cwtsh (welsh for cuddles) night with the other half. Did you hear about the poor man who worked at a sausage factory? He was trying to make ends meet.

Absolutely delicious! Such a satisfying and enjoyable meal. Served with crusty bread and it was a total hit! An easy one to make too - will definitely make again soon. This will be great to add to pasta too and simply increase quantities to make it last for a second meal or for a larger number of people. (As I was cooking for 5, I did increase the number of sauasges as suggested and I did cut them up - as I added extra sausages I added an extra tin of tomatoes and a little more of the chilli and spices.) Love love love!

This is tasty but can be a bit overwhelming with tomato flavour. Add a big handful of diced chorizo for some more flavour

I would agree with marcntomsmum that it would be a good idea to cut the sausages up - this is good and filling and is enough for four with the beans but I think people might fight over the sausages! Also, I think it might be a good idea to brown the sausages right at the beginning and then remove from the pan before starting on the vegetables. It took me an age to get any colour on them and I was at a risk of burning my onions! A good hearty recipe.

Add bite sized pieces of cooked new potatoes with the beans to make a complete one pot meal. Yummy.
