We'd never thought of smoked lean sausage as a standby until reader Frank Calver suggested it via the Internet. The sausage easily elevates simple canned lentils into a savoury rustic casserole. Canned navy or black beans would work here as well.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 12 oz smoked sausages thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 1 can lentils drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 pinch pepper
Topping:
  • 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Method

In large ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes or until softened.

Add sausage, carrots and herb seasoning; cook for 5 minutes or until sausage is golden brown. Add lentils, chicken stock and pepper; cook for 5 minutes or until hot.

Topping: Combine bread crumbs, cheese and oil; sprinkle over sausage mixture. Broil for 1 minute or until golden.
