You know those nights where you have dinner planned but cant for the life of you find where the recipe is?
Yes, well....I had one of those nights recently. I had planned a pasta dish that uses sausages and some beans, I thought, but could not lay my hands on a yummy recipe that I had used a few weeks before. I don't always cook by a specific recipe, but when I am trying new things I tend to use the recipe as a guide that I then tweak.
Anyhoo..I get home from work in a bit of a pickle. Not only could I not find the recipe, but I had no spaghetti. Needless to say, I winged it.... so here is my recipe:
Sausage, Bean & Spinach one pot wonder.
5 x pork sausages from the deli
1 tin cannellini or butter beans
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 punnet of baby tomatoes
handful of baby spinach leaves
about a cup of risoni
Sprig of thyme and/or rosemary
Put a large frying pan on medium heat with just a splash of olive oil. Remove the meat from the sausage casings and add to the pan. Fry until golden, breaking up as you go. Add the beans, tomatoes, herbs and stock and simmer. Add the risoni and pop a lid on the pan and simmer until the risoni is cooked (about 10 mins). Mush the tomatoes into the dish a little with the back of a wooden spoon. Stir through baby spinach and serve!
Seriously a good quality tasty meal. All my fellas love it!
