Sausage and chorizo casserole
2 celery sticks
A big clove of garlic / 1 tbsp garlic puree
1/2 chorizo ring
6 pork sausages (I used chipolatas 90% pork)
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tbsp thyme
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 tin cannellini beans
A few cooked baby potatoes, halved
Chop the vegetables (inc garlic) and gently fry them till soft.
Add the sausages and, after 5 mins, the spices. Cook for a few mins.
Add the tin of tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Add the chorizo, chopped, and simmer for 30-40 mins.
Add the cannellini beans and potatoes and cook for an additional 5 mins.
Cheat version: Make up a tomato soup at the beginning of the week using tinned tomatoes, a few sticks of celery, one or two onions, a few carrots and garlic. Use a blender to make it smooth. Then use this as the sauce for this casserole, which cuts out needing to prepare all the veg.
