hearty sausage and 3-bean casserole

Hearty Sausage and 3-Bean Casserole

This hearty casserole features sausages and beans. You can use chorizo-style chipolatas, perhaps pinching and twisting them, and then cutting them in half, so you get smaller pieces. Also in this dish you have 3 types of beans – flageolet, butterbeans and kidney beans. The sauce is made with passata, which is cooked strained tomatoes, as well as balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and dark treacle to add a rich and earthy sweetness, garlic for an aromatic accent, and onion and corn (frozen or canned) to finish it off perfectly.

This is the kind of dish that is lovely served with crusty bread, and you can use the bread to soak up all the lovely juices. It is your choice whether you want to make this one the stove or in the oven. Either way would work. Some people find they cannot get their stovetop burners low enough so rather than risk burning this, you might want to use the oven, and it will take about 30 or 40 minutes to bake in there.

Enjoy this for lunch or dinner. It is hot and hearty, but not only for the winter months. Whenever you are in the mood for Italian food and you want to combine meat, vegetables and aromatic flavors, consider this dish, because it is really nice. It is chunkier and heartier than a soup, but there is plenty of liquid, so serve it in bowls not on plates. The rich caramelized sauce is one of the best things about this wonderful casserole, and you will find the flavors perfectly balanced. Continue reading
