  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.

Make it meat free with cauldron sausages and a good vegetable stock. I've never tried the original but the meat free option is yummy. 5 stars for the idea even although I've changed it a little.

Amazing flavour for something so easy, would never have thought to use olives in a stew but loved it! Used Italian flavour beef sausages and double the amount of kalamata olives. The only problem was the amount of liquid, it comes out way way too runny. The phrase "simmer until sauce is reduced a little" is quite misleading seeing that there is only more an more liquid with time as the mushrooms cook and release their juices. Would not use the stock next time, but add a stock cube directly to the tomato sauce. Served it for dinner with mash and for lunch the next day mixed with penne pasta - great both ways.

Just made this as a veggie version. So easy and quick. Very, very tasty. Made mashed potato with horseradish to go with it. A really hearty meal.

Just made this, and enjoyed it thoroughly. I left out the olives, and added a red onion with the mushrooms. I also poured in some red wine and left the sauce to thicken a little longer than the recipe states and it was well worth the wait. I served it with some mashed tatties with garlic salt and pepper. lovely.

I would have rated it higher if it turned out a little less bland. I had to add a good bit of salt and pepper to get the flavours out. It might be the sausages I used for it though!

Why is this so good?! I was looking for something easy to throw together for a lazy dinner, and was really surprised how delicious this turned out. We used kangaroo sausages, which I'd never had before but they were amazing in this. Served it with mash.

Quick, easy, cheap and extremely tasty! Defiantly need something like mash or a big chunk of bread and butter to soak up the juices!

Excellent and so easy to make. The olives gave it a lovely taste and we had it with Bulgar wheat to soak up all the juices!

Delicious and versatile, I have added carrot and lentils, adjusting the cooking time. Oh, and a smidgen of Marmite always goes a long way.

Delicious! I added an Onion to mine,as I wanted it to go a bit further & I think casseroles need an Onion. Also a slosh of red wine....might do fewer sausages but add some bacon next time too. I also made a veggie version for my daughter with Cauldron sausages,which she absolutely loved.

Superb recipe! Doubled the quantity as cooking for a crowdGot the thumbs up from everybody. Another favourite along with lemon pepper chicken. Easy to make and smells delicious when cooking. Not a great fan of mushrooms so used sweet potato instead - cut into very small cubes. Served it with jacket potato. Will be making it again - maybe serving it with pasta stirred in as suggested above. Yum!
