Sausage and Cannellini Bean Casserole

Packed with hearty veg, fresh greens and juicy sausages, it’s the perfect dinner for colder nights.

Preparation time : 20 minutes. Cooking time : 25 mins, serves 4.

Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil
8 reduced-fat pork sausages
1 onion, finely chopped
1 celery stick, finely chopped
1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
400g tin chopped tomatoes
400ml chicken stock (made up with ½ stock cube)
1 tsp smoked paprika
400g tin cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
100g sliced greens

Method

Heat the oil in a large, lidded nonstick frying pan or flameproof casserole dish over a medium-high heat. Add the sausages and cook for 5 mins, turning frequently, until browned all over. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate.
Add the onion, celery, carrot and garlic to the pan. Cook over a medium-high heat for 10 mins until softened and lightly golden. Return the sausages to the pan along with the tinned tomatoes, stock and smoked paprika. Season lightly and stir. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 20 mins until the sauce has thickened slightly.
Stir in the beans and greens, then cover and simmer for a further 5 mins until the greens have softened. Spoon into bowls and grind over some black pepper to serve.

Success Stories
We were both on Gourmet Dating and at first it seemed unbelievable that we lived just a mile from each other. That gave us plenty to talk about because we both were familiar with local places and knew the same restaurants. We agreed that our dating would be just a friends thing - just someone to go out with, as we were both recovering from relationships that had gone wrong. Our first date was 6 months ago and we kept to our word, but as the weekly meals out became better and better we realised that we were going to be friends forever. The passion we shared for food helped us to build what I think is an amazing relationship and I wouldn't change this for the world.
