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.

Wish I'd read more than the first 3 comments - as it was a disaster. Used good quality big sausages, they weren't even cooked in 20 mins neither were the lentils. Had I read further i would have seen other needed to cook it longer too.

Not sure if I will try again.

Really enjoyed it. Used brown lentils which took 40mins to soften. Added 2 tsp mustard just before serving. Would make it again adding more peppers & veg. Chestnut mushrooms would be good. Served it with carrot & cheese bake & rosti potatoes. Making it for an informal supper with friends next week. Will prepare it in advance & warm it up.

This was delicious. and very easy. I used spicey merguez sausages which gave the lentils a nice kick!

Easily affordable for a student budget and a great way to use up a bag of lentils. I used red lentils and chicken rather than vegetable stock so it might be even better with the correct inredients.

Delish. Worth spending extra on some good quality sausages for the flavour. It benefits from the red wine if you can use it.

I deviated a bit from the original recipe, adding 4 rashers of bacon (diced), 1 red chilli (sliced), pork stock instead of wine, plus 2tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1tbsp tomato ketchup, 1 tbsp tomato puree and a splosh of Worcester Sauce. The end result wound up quite dry, but was utterly gorgeous with some additional gravy. I served it with mashed potato and savoy cabbage. Deee-lishus! Oh, and just right after Carol Singing!

I used red lentils and added some carrots to up the veg content and this came out really nice. I'd definitely do this one again - it was really nice wintry food. Definitely need quite a bit more water than it says though..

Tasty, easy and relatively quick, served with some steamed savoy cabbage. I pre-boiled the lentils separately owing to comments above above re the cooking time not being long enough. Will make again.

I made this with veggie sausages - fabulous. Added extra red pepper and some mushrooms and served with potato and celeriac mash. Will definitely be using this more come Autumn/Winter.

Good recipe, would definately cook again, although as previously stated by others the lentils need cookingfor longer and you also need to add more liquid - a good excuse to use more red wine!! Also, next time I make it I will skin the peppers as the skins were a little tough...but otherwise a great,easy recipe my husband enjoyed it and one I will use again!
