2tablespoonsparsleychopped (plus extra for sprinkling)
Mash and a green vegetable to serve
Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a deep sided frying pan and add the diced onion. Cover with a lid and cook on a low heat for 5 minutes until the onions have softened but are not brown.
Add the sausage pieces and turn up the heat. Fry for 2-3 minutes until they have some colour on them.
Add in the garlic, lower the heat and fry for 1 more minute. Then add in the tinned tomatoes and red wine (if using) plus some salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then turn down and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
Use this time to cook your accompaniments: mashed potatoes, rice or pasta, plus whatever veg you are doing.
After 10 minutes add in 1 drained tin of butterbeans. Cook for a further 5 minutes. Then add in 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley.
Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or pasta and green vegetables or just with crusty bread and a glass of whatever red wine you used in cooking. Sprinkle over some extra parsley as a garnish.
