This recipe is from The River Cottage Family Cookbook. I've changed it slightly. The original recipe calls for 8 pork sausages and a 14 ounce can of plum tomatoes. I use a pound of regular bulk sausage and a can of Italian or garlic flavored chopped tomatoes. (Use whatever flavor sausage and tomatoes you like.) Also, the original recipe says to let the stew simmer for one to two hours. The most I've allowed it to simmer is 30 minutes. It's a very, very good stew.
