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.

nice recipe for sausages but i had no red pepper or red wine so i used 1 red chilli a tin of chopped tomatos and a tin of red kidneys beans without the water for extra texture i used a 1/2 tps of wholegrain musturd and half lemon juice. hot and spicey but i think better than the previous recipe.

Done this a couple of times it's so good. My ultimate variation - fry off some chilli flakes with the onion, use loads more cooking red wine (I also added some porcini stock) and plenty more cooking time and serve with venison sausages.... delicious.

As others have said, not enough liquid and way too many lentils. Lentils overpower the flavour of the garlic, wine and sausages and eating it feels like a chore. First time I have had a bad recipe from here.

You need a lot more liquid to cook the lentils through. I had to throw in a lot of more stock and water before everything was cooked and that really ruined the colour, creating more of a murky purple colour rather than the rich red from the photo.

It didn't taste bad though but I probably wouldn't make it again.

Tasted fantastic, really pleased. I would use slightly less lentils though.

This was really good. I also added extra red wine and a tin of flageolet beans as I didn't have enough puy lentils. Just before serving I added a touch of cream and some flat leaf parsley. It made a lovely sauce for mopping up.

Really nice, grilled the sausages and cut them up when adding them. Used green beans instead of peppers. Caramalised the onions and garlic using balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Added a bit extra liquid too. Seasoned with salt and pepper... might try this again but vary ingrediants, perhaps add cherry tomatoes, use some herbs...

I agree with the above. Needed lots more stock and 2omins extra cooking time. I used 3 onions (one brown two red) and caramelised them first which I think must've added to the flavour as mine was delicious. Wish I'd read the comments first- I will try balsamic next time at the end of caramelising the onions.

Good, but needs the wine.

Delicious and filling. I found it needed more liquid.

I don't know where I went wrong but even after doubling the amount of stock and wine, all the liquid had disappeared after 10 minutes! Lentils were almost cooked. Only used the correct amount of lentils and it only simmered gently while cooking. Had to add a little water which diluted the taste a little probably. Still tasted great though. Any ideas what could have gone wrong? Will try again.
