Smoky Sausage Casserole

On 19th March 2016, This was Dinner

We had a great day today. We went off to see my cousin’s new home where she cooked us our breakfast sandwich of choice. Bacon and mushroom for me, sausage and tomato for Mr S. The only down side was that her labrador was so excited to see me that she head butted me, causing a nose bleed. All was forgiven though as she is the reason we have Walter.

Afterwards we went for a walk in the woods. It’s always so good to see Walter off lead and this is possible for most of the time in the woods as the only people you tend to come across are others with exuberant dogs who just want to play.

When we got back we had big appetites so were ready for this.

Get set…

  • Preheat the oven to 190°c (fan)
  • Finely chop an onion
  • Crush a garlic clove
  • Finely chop a stick of celery
  • Cut a red, green & yellow pepper into chunks
  • Drain a tin of cannellini beans
  • Whizz up some bread for fresh breadcrumbs
  • Great some mozzarella
  • Get pork sausages, smoked paprika, ground cumin, chilli flakes, 2 tins chopped tomatoes, spinach, oil & seasoning ready

Throw it together…

Heat some oil in a casserole dish and brown the sausages. Remove and set aside.

Add a little more oil if required and cook the onion until softened.

Add the garlic, celery and peppers, stir well and cook for another five minutes.

Add the chilli flakes, paprika and cumin and stir. Pour in the tomatoes and bring to the boil then turn down and add the sausages back to the pan. Season and stir.

Pop the lid on and pop and cook for 20 minutes. Add the beans and cook for another 10 minutes.

If you have a grill setting in your oven, turn this on. Sprinkle the casserole with the breadcrumbs and the cheese and cook with the lid off in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

Dish it up…

Nothing extra needed here. Just a bowl will do.
