A quick and easy family recipe; Sausage Casserole cooked on the hob in less than 30 minutes!


Prep: 5 mins

Cook: 25 mins


  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 8 sausages (meat or vegetarian)
  • 1 medium white onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 400g / 14oz tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 200ml / 8 fl oz chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 400g / 14 oz tin butter beans, drained


Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the sausages and fry gently for 5-6 minutes until they start to brown. Remove the sausages from the pan and put to one side.

In the same pan, add the onion and fry for 2-3 minutes until it starts to soften and become translucent. Then add the garlic and carrots and cook for another couple of minutes.

Once that’s done, add the tinned tomatoes, tomato puree, stock, paprika and mixed herbs to the onions, garlic and carrots. Stir well before adding the sausages back into the pan. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes.

Add the butter beans and cook for a further 5 minutes until they have warmed through.
Serve immediately with crusty bread, rice or sliced crispy potatoes.
