This weekend our TV was on more than it would normally be as we became glued to the World Cup Rugby watching the last few of our nations teams in the quarter final matches. Today we’re joining with Tesco’s to #CelebrateTheNations and we’ve been experimenting in the kitchen to create a Rugby World Cup Inspired dish for a family or group dinner ideal after watching the match or if you too have been inspired and a game of rugby is on the cards for your family. With the need for a dish that will let you escape I’ve got the crockpot off the top of the fridge and this can be prepared well in advance leaving you to watch the match or have a game – here’s our very easy to make Crockpot Italian Spicy Sausage Casserole recipe.
