Lentils are so under rated and this is a great recipe to get people eating more of them! Tasty but agreed needs longer cooking time.

The worst recipe that I ever followed from this website!

I just can't understand how they came up with that picture from that recipe. I have never had trouble from any oher recipe yet his ended up looking like a pile of dog's mess.

I recommended this dish to my mother in law and she loved it and decided to make it for a party of 150 people. I got there at 2pm and nothing had been done so I had to customize it, here's my story and variation on the recipe http://bit.ly/thedelectablediarysausagepartypost

Great recipe - very easy and delicious. I added a bit more chilli and also some oregano and juice of half a lemon at the end. Very warming on a snowy day like yesterday.

I had to add more then double the amount of stock recommended and cooked it for considerably longer. I used green lentils though. This may affected it. It didn't caramelise like the one in the picture. Sausages were delicious and soft.

I didn't enjoy this at all, for all the reasons mentioned above. I should have stuck with Nigella's Italian sausages with lentils - its a similar but much nicer recipe.

wow! this was a real tasty treat, i added a little more wine and stock as the lentils took longer to cook and did not cook with sausages. instead i slow roasted belly pork roll and when the lentils were ready, i placed slices of pork on a bed of lentils. think i would serve more though. XX

Nice flavour, but the lentils took longer to soften than the 20 mins of the recipe. By the time it was ready, the red pepper was mushy and I prefer a bit of a crunch. I suggest a nice glass of red wine with the meal!

Good potential, poor execution. I think it should specify red onions as it would really help add deeper colour and flavour! I also used tinned lentils to bring down the cooking time. Also, next time I will be adding some caramelised onions and perhaps a little cornflour to thicken the liquid? Maybe a few sundried tomatoes too as they always add a deeper flavour. It was still pretty nice though, just a bit too watery for me.

Very yummy - needed more water and time, but otherwise great stuff

Not bad but if I were to make this again, I'd half the quantity of lentils, add another pepper and possibly some mushrooms. Certainly a belly buster though!

An okay dish but nothing special. I used Mercant Gourmet puy lentils in a tin for quickness and added some mushrooms. Served with mash.

I like this recipe as not only is it tasty but also easy to make, not too much washing up and uses ingredients which I often have around. I didn't find the lentils took much longer than stated in the recipe.
It is very warming, ideal for these colder nights!
I have experimented with different sausages e.g. chorizo style which added some extra interest. I also often use a dash of sherry rather than wine, making up the difference with stock (normally I use chicken for extra depth).
Bread is essential for mopping up the yummy juices!

I bought the ready cooked Puy lentils- highly recommended. Also, for a true belly buster experience serve with mashed potato!

The lentils took at least 40 mins to cook rather than the quoted 20...yummy otherwise

Tasted ok, but not one of my favourites. As previously mentioned, it took a lot more liquid than stated.
