    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 1onion, sliced
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1 leek, thickly sliced
    • 2medium potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks (approx 450g)
    • 2 tsp smoked paprika
    • 2 400g tins plum tomatoes
    • splash of red wine

  • Method
     
    1. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan and fry the sausages for -10 minutes, turning frequently until browned all over. Remove from the pan.
    2. Drain any excess oil from the pan then add the onion and garlic and sauté for a few minutes to soften. Add in the leeks, potato and smoked paprika and cook for 4-5 mins.
    3. Pour in the tomatoes, red wine and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and return the sausages to the pan, along with the cannelini beans. Cover with a lid and cook for 20-25 mins over a low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and continue to cook for a further 5-10 mins.
    4. Season to taste, and scatter with parsley or chives. Serve with a crusty bread.
