This was really nice, anything with red wine and sausages put together is a winner.

Yum! Really delicious. Used tinned puy lentils so cooking time was spot on. So quick and easy definitely one to make again.

Before I say anything, I want to say that I use this site on a regular basis and I've had remarkable success with every recipe on the site. I always cook for myself and my girlfriend and very rarely do we eat takeaway. However after cooking 'this' I was left with no alternative. What I was eventually left with was what I can descibe as a non descript bowl of brown sludge which had a close resemblence to cat sick.
Do not try this.

Lentils definitely need longer....this is the first time I've done puy lentils and they were a little on the hard side!

I enjoyed this meal and it's a good healthier alternative to sausage and mash. It's not necessarily on my "definitely do again" list though.

Tasty, best with a dollop of mustard mixed-in for a little extra kick :)

Anyone trying this recipe should note that the cooking time and liquid quantities are way out for Puy lentils, or other whole lentils for that matter. I wouldn't do this recipe with split lentils, however, as then you'd just get a mush.

Next time, I plan to cook the lentils first/separately and only add them for the last 5 minutes. I'm hoping that'll keep the sauce clearer as it is in the picture for this recipe.

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.
