I made this dish a few weeks ago - it was from either That's Life or Woman's Day - it was delish! ! but man I've lost the recipe - argh! Does anyone here have it. It had beef sausages and beans in it... . .

am also posting in general

Oh well. In the absence of any help from anyone else I'd say that this recipe looks like it is probably a much straitened and fat reduced version of the most wonderful French Cassoulet.

I have googled it and here is a link to the Woman's Day version (you could have done this yourself of course)

You could also google using the phrase 'sausage and bean casserole' or just plain 'Cassoulet' and you will be rewarded with many recipes and versions.

Some useless info: Once upon a time there was a village suffering from the ravages of war and each household was down to very little food. The town pulled together. They all donated whatever they could spare and all the disparate ingredients were cooked in a big pot. The result was Cassoulet and this dish nourished the village daily. I have always thought this a wonderful story and think that areas that have sudden and devastating events could get together and do this instead of just looking out for themselves.

Sorry I couldn't find the right recipe. Maybe later on this evening someone may pop in and have the right recipe.

There's a White Bean and Sausage Bake recipe which uses pasta sauce on the That's Life website.
