Spicy Sausage Ragu………Stretched

One packet of sausages, one tin of chick peas and six meals

Spicy Sausage Ragu.........Stretched

I had an idea this morning. I wondered if you could spread one packet of sausages in to two family meals instead of just the one.

My original idea was to use a tin of Kidney beans, but I discovered when I opened the cupboard that I didn’t have any.  So I then looked at the contents of the cupboard and settled on a tin of chickpeas.

The result was surprisingly lovely and would feed six adults and two children or eight adults if you serve it with a side salad and perhaps some garlic bread?
