CHICK PEAS WITH TOMATOES AND SAUSAGES

This dish is good for main course. Chick peas with tomatoes and sausages are prepared by cooking chick peas, pork sausages, and lean bacon. To spice up the flavour, combine it with the remaining ingredients. Although it’s kind of hard preparing this kind of dish, the taste is really good.
