Well, I did change a lot, although the I like the recipe. First I agree with whoever commented on the cooking time for the lentils, they need more like 40 mins than 20. The possibilities for jazzing up the lentils are endless. My personal favourite as extra for the lentil/pepper/onion brew is:
a bit of carotte, teaspoon tomato ketchup, splash of worchester sauce.
Find the crusty bread idea a bit strange as I had hardly enough stock/sauce and kept having to add wine (!) to keep it going.

Made this last night and cannot believe how much flavour from so few ingredients. Delicious and simple. I used 3 cloves of garlic instead of one as I love it and cooked the lentils for a lot longer than suggested but all in all, filling, simple and lovely.

Used red lentils and double the stock, used extra stock and added tomato puree instead of wine. Would use red wine next time+less lentils, but it was easy to make and was tasty enough, had mash with it. Wud make this again.

Really tasty and filling. Even my fussy children ate it! Lentils make a great change from mash.

Easy to make but not as nice as it looks, def need to make something like mash potato etc to go with, it wasnt unpleasant but would adapt if I made again, the sauce was nice but I think its the lentils to be honest.

My family loved this. Cooked this very easy recipe as printed. Needed extra liquid as others have noted plus 20 mins cooking time Will certainly cook again, doubleing and freezing the recipe.

I made this with red lentils and needed a LOT more stock. an additional 400ml, maybe more. A tasty dish though, flavour depends on the quality of your sausages and stock obviously.

This changed the way we cooked as we discovered lentils could be tasty! A firm favourite.

We made this with venison steaks instead of sausages and beluga lentils, it left the meat a bit dry though so more liquid would be adviseable, none the less the flavours were fantastic we will certainly give this another go

Made life easier for myself and added a tin of Epicure puy lentils. Warm and satisfying quick recipe, good family meal.

Really enjoyed this and the lentils were yummy. However, I might just stick to sausages, mash and onion gravy - can't be beaten!!

A very easy recipe, as expected from previous comments it took longer than stated to cook the lentils. It was really tasty, and will be keen to have this again.

Fab recipe: very easy. I added Worcester Sauce and black pepper too. Lentils needed 40 mins. All in all really delish and I will definitely cook again. I served it with honey roast Chantenay carrots. Next time I might grill the sausages to cut down on fat content.
