Method

  1. Using kitchen scissors, snip the sausages into meatball-size pieces. Heat a large pan and fry the pieces in the oil for about 5 mins until golden all over.
  2. Add the oregano and garlic, fry for 1 min more, then tip in the tomatoes, stock, olives and mushrooms.
  3. Simmer for 15 mins until the sausages are cooked through and the sauce has reduced a little. Serve with mashed potato or pasta.

This was really delicious and took no time to make. Really flavoursome. Agree with other comments about needing much less mushrooms. Served with mash.. Yum

This is a cracker. A hearty, filling tasty stew which is all done in the one pot. I stuck to the recipe and wasn't disappointed, I defy anyone to know that's you've used low fat sausages in this winter warmer. One thing I'd mention the colour of the stew was more redder than in the photo above and therefore looks abit more appealing. Will definitely making this again.

This is a great baseline recipe, you can use Lincoln sausages if you want to tweak up the taste factor, or even chicken if you don’t like sausages, we’ve even used it without any meat and used more mushrooms along with bell peppers and challots for vegetarian friends.
Personally I more than double the garlic to give it a punch, but this recipe is simply great as posted.

Loved this recipe (and I'm not normally a fan of mushrooms!). Halved the portion to make it for two people but kept the same amount of chopped (canned) tomatoes so more of a stew-like texture. Great just served with crusty bread!

This recipe was really lovely. I used vegetarian sausages as I prefer them to sausages but kept everything else the same. I added 2 tablespoons of plain flour halfway through to thicken the sauce. Served with sweet potato mash (added a veg stock cube to the water to give more flavour to the potato) and peas. Definitely one of my favourite meals made on good food.

I made this a while ago and remember it being very tasty. However I've got it going on the hob at the moment and found that the quantities to make up the sauce this time round seem a bit off, can't think why! I had to use 2 cans tomatoes and 400ml beef stock to get enough sauce to cover the mountain of mushrooms stated. However it smells pretty good! I'm serving it with polenta mash. I cheat and make mine with ready made polenta, boiled in the bag and then stir in some butter and cheese. MMM!

Great tasty quick meal to prepare mid week. I used less mushrooms and added a red and green pepper and served with rice. Its become a favourite!

Made this last night with champ mash and it was ace. I added a big splash of red wine to reduce whilst the sausages were cooking at the beginning, also added a teaspoon of black treacle and a dash of vinegar whilst waiting for the stock to reduce. Was yum.

Simple and delicious. Waited till mushroom-hating daughter left for weekend and really enjoyed having this dish with so many chestnut and button mushrooms!

Nice, but maybe not as great as the comments below suggest - very wet, so mash is essential to mop it all up.

A really brilliant mid-week family meal. Cheap, tasty, quick and simple - what more could you ask? Served with garlic mash, as per above suggestions, and green beans. Already a firm family favourite.
