My favourite weekday recipe - spicy sausage casserole

This recipe has done the rounds with my friends and family. Every person I've shared it with has told me that it's gone on to become a favourite.

I've used it for supper with guests, a restorative meals on wheels for a poorly friend and I've fed it to my Dad. He who was adamant that he didn't eat butter beans, but then I caught him having seconds!

It's nothing special, but it is super quick (half an hour tops), filling and very tasty.

The original recipe can be found here on the rather marvelous BBC GoodFood site.

Spicy sausage and butter bean casserole

  • Spicy sausages, about half a dozen or so (I like to use a mix of Gorno's Toulouse and Spicy Calabrian sausages)
  • Bacon - couple of rashers
  • Leek - one large, sliced
  • Chicken or vegetable stock - about 200ml
  • White wine - glass
  • Garlic - clove (or 2 to your taste)
  • Chilli flakes - half a teaspoon, again to taste
  • Butter beans - 2 tins
  • Parsley - chopped
  1. Brown the sausages and remove to a plate and when cool slice into chunks
  2. Fry the bacon then add the leek and garlic and soften
  3. Return the sausages and add the rest of the ingredients
  4. Simmer until the sausages are cooked through
  5. Add the parsley before serving
Super quick, super easy, super tasty and it needs nothing more than some leaves (spinach is good) and maybe some crusty bread.

When I haven't been able to get spicy sausages, which is always more difficult than you'd think it should be, I'll use the most interesting pork variety I can find, but then I'll vary the herbs and eat it with cheese and bread.

If you do get round to trying it I'd love to hear from you - similarly if you come up with another variation let me know by commenting below!
