  • Add the olive oil to a large pot on a medium/low heat. Peel the garlic cloves but keep whole and add them to the pot with the sage leaves.
  • When the garlic starts to take on some colour add the beans with 6 tablespoon of their cooking liquid and the passata (pureed tomatoes).
  • Let the beans simmer for around 10 minutes. Cut each sausage into three then add them to the beans.
  • Season with a salt and pepper and continue to simmer the bean stew gently until the sausages are cooked through (around 15-20 minutes). Stir it every so often but be careful not to mash up the beans.
  • Once ready, remove the garlic cloves and serve. Serve with salad and crusty bread.
