400g can tomatoes
400g can red kidney beans, well rinsed

2 tablespoons soft brown sugar
2 bay leaves
About 300ml strong chicken stock

Preheat the oven to 200c/Gas 6.
Heat the oil in a large ovenproof pan with a lid, add the sausages and brown well. Add the tomato puree and mix well.
Add all the remaining ingredients except the cornflour and mix together thoroughly. Cover and cook in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
