  2. Add tomato puree and all the beans, cover and cook for 10 mins, while you make the cobbler topping.
  3. Heat oven to 180C.
  4. Put flour and butter into a bowl and rub it together until it forms breadcrumbs.
  5. Stir in the sage and milk until mixture forms sticky dough.
  6. Spoon sausage and bean mix into an ovenproof dish and tear off golf ball sized pieces of dough, sitting them on top. (You can have plenty of gaps)
  7. Bake for 25 – 30 mins until the top is golden.

 You can serve this with garlic bread or chips etc.

 2 tsp of chilli paste will have a bit of a kick to it, so only use 1 tsp if you prefer it mild, or leave it out completely,  if you are feeding it to the kids!!!!
