Really delicious with loads of crusty bread and a good glass of red. Used beef sausages and the combination of red wine with stock made the sauce lovely and rich and a great complement to the sausages. Definitely a quick but tasty favourite!

Tasty thing to have if you're in the mood for sausages with a twist. Thanks to lentils surprisingly filling too, so make more and store away for a quick breakfast / lunch.

Really filling family meal-lentils took longer than expected to cook.Will make again.

I didn't have any red pepper so I made this with one grated carrot instead. I added some dried thyme and served it with green cabbage and a mixture of mash potatoes and swede. By using low fat sausages and dry frying the onions, I can eat this on my low fat diet.

Really delicious, tasty comfort food! Would def make again. Used pork and caramelised onion sausages which gave a really nice flavour to the lentils.

Tasty lentils. It is great and filling on its own but we have also served alongside some potato salad.

This proved to be a winner, even for the OH who is normally "anti-pulse". Fantastic depth of flavour. Definitely one for the binder!

A really filling meal that is perfect with a large glass of red on a cold night in - I found it easy to make for lots of friends too. Yum!

I doubled the stock - used two veg oxo, a pack of Tescos finest pork and leek sausages, one 250g Merchant Gourmet pack of pre cooked puy lentils and three cloves of garlic along side the other ingredients listed. I grilled the sausages to brown them, cooked the lentils according to the instructions for the hob and chucked them in for the last five minutes (time from when stock added to end was 20 mins). Served with some pre cut runner beans and it was absolutely delicious!
