Slow Cooked Italian Sausage Casserole

Slow Cooked Italian Sausage Casserole

 

 

There is something so very comforting about a Sausage Casserole. This Italian-style Sausage Casserole is  warming bowl of spicy sausages and creamy beans which is even better when you put it all in the Slow Cooker in the morning and it’s ready for you to eat at supper time.  You could make it without soured cream, but it really adds amazing richness to what would otherwise by a fairly ordinary plate of sausages and beans!

Instructions
  1. Soak the beans in water overnight
  2. Brown the sausages in a pan or in the oven, so the skins start to turn golden but remove before the sausages are cooked and put in a dish.
  3. Soften the onion and red pepper in the oils left from the sausages.
  4. Drain the beans and place in the base of the slow cooker (crockpot)
  5. Add the onions and pepper, tomatoes, stock and pimenton and mix through.
  6. Place the sausages on top of the beans, put on the lid and cook on Low for 7 hours 30 minutes
  7. Add the kale, replace the lid and cook on High for 30 minutes
  8. Just before serving stir 100ml of soured cream through the beans.
  9. Serve each portion with a spoonful of soured cream and a sprinkling of fresh coriander.
Notes
  1. You could use pre-cooked beans or canned beans and reduce the cooking time by 2 hours and reduce the chicken stock to 200ml.

    Sausage and bean casserole is always a favourite here too, using the Italian sausages sounds great to add extra flavour. I love the idea of stirring through the soured cream to get a creamy sauce and adding some on serving, I will certainly be trying your recipe soon!
