This was very well received by the adults and children - a great way to incorporate lots of veggies! It did take longer than 25 mins though - I had it in the oven for nearly an hour. I also couldn't get any fresh gravy so used white wine, mustard and stock.

Very tasty indeed - bob-on!

It was well received and I enjoyed it too. It will definitely be used again and again - Thanks.

Made this for my niece and nephews yesterday and it disappeared within minutes. I had to use Gluten Free sausages as we have a coeliac in the family but they tasted alright for the rest of us despite being a bit pale.

I was hoping the sausages would brown a bit more than they did but once the gravy was in there it didn't matter so much. I doubled it and it served four adults and four children with good appetites!

I did it was jackets, green beans and cauliflower cheese which was the perfect Sunday warming supper.

Nice enough but it's just sausages, veg & gravy

Really enjoyed this - good comfort food. I used sweet potato instead of pumpkin and roasted it for a little longer and use whole grain mustard as suggested - Will be cooking again.

Yummy - made mine with sweet potato instead of pumpkin, and as suggested, used wholegrain mustard instead of carraway.

My husband wishes I would make this every night he loves it that much. It's so easy and so delicious. I don't add the caraway seeds, but loving the suggestion of red wine!

Easy and very tasty. I used Dijon Mustard instead of wholegrain and a stock cube with a generous dash of red wine. I also added mushrooms and courgettes.

Good, simple, comfort food. Great for autumn and winter months. I used the variation with wholegrain mustard, nice and warming.
