Italian Sausage & Cannellini Bean Casserole

Italian Sausage & Cannellini Bean Casserole


6 Italian Style Sausages

1 tbsp olive oil

1 large onion - chopped

1 green pepper - sliced

2 cloves garlic - crushed

400g can chopped tomatoes

200ml passata

400g can cannellini beans - drained and rinsed

2 tbsp sun dried tomato paste/puree

2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves


Freshly ground black pepper


Grill the sausages under a medium grill until cooked.

While the sausages are grilling, in the frying pan heat the olive oil and soften the onion, pepper and garlic over a medium heat for about 8 minutes. It helps to pop the lid on.

Add the chopped tomatoes, passata and sun dried tomato paste and bring to a gentle simmer. Pop the lid on and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Cut the cooked sausages in half, at an angle (bias). Add the beans and thyme to the pan and stir through the tomatoes to combine - add the sausages and cook for a further couple of minutes until everything has heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve with brown rice or mashed potato.
