With hearty cannellini beans and a crunchy breadcrumb topping


Time Required

1 hour



Cooking Level



  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 onion, finely chopped 
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed 
  • 1 large celery stick, finely chopped 
  • 2 peppers (any colour), cut into chunks 
  • 12 pork sausages 
  • 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika 
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin 
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes 
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes 
  • 400g can cannellini beans, drained 
  • 250g bag spinach (or use the same quantity as frozen) 
  • 2 tbsp fresh breadcrumbs (or frozen with herbs)

    Steps for cooking

    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 50 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.
