Italian style sausage and bean casserole
This is a simple and hearty casserole which is perfect at the end of a long day. The thyme in this dish really provides that taste of Italy – bellisima!
Health benefits: As with all of Mama’s Meals this dish has been designed to give tired parents a boost with nutritious ingredients and a focus on foods which release energy slowly and won’t cause a sugar spike and subsequent ‘crash’ as this is the last thing you need if you’re already exhausted. Aduki beans provide a great source of fibre and protein keeping you feeling nice and full until your next meal (which I know could be some time!) as well as essential minerals in the form of folate, potassium and magnesium. There’s also a hefty amount of veg meaning that you can hit four of your five a day from just one meal.
Ingredients: sausages, aduki beans, tomatoes, peppers, onion, thyme, garlic
