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.

I made this the day before so that it was ready to just heat through and the flavours were definitely better for it. I needed to add a little cornflour to thicken the sauce and think that the better the quality of sauges you use the tastier the dish will be.

I really liked this, I'm not a fan of tomato based meals but with all the ingredients in this, especially the olives, it tastes not too tomatoey (if that's a word!). I served it with rice and it went down a storm, a great, quick and easy supper dish.

My partner is not normally that keen on tomato based sauces but he loved this, so much so that he had seconds. It was really easy to make and although it seems there are a lot of mushrooms they shrink as the recipe is cooking. I did cook it a little longer than the recipe said, and next time I might add red peppers...as there will definitely be a next time.

I left out the Olives (yuk) and added 1 fresh Chilli and some bacon. Mmmmmmmmmm! Chilli gave it a tiny kick and it tasted fantastic. Served with mash.

This was yummy! I will admit that we used full fat sausages, but everything in moderation. I also only added olives at the end to my own portion as nobody else in the family likes them.
It was very easy to make, so much so that actually my 13 year old step son did most of it.
Next time I would add less mushrooms and add peppers and maybe red onion. Will definitely make again.

Great easy meal that I have made quite a few times. Everyone that I have cooked it for has loved it. It's just nice to do something different with sausages. The flavours are fantastic together but i also left out the olives because I'm not keen on them. I served this with mustard mash which was lovely!

Lovely! So good I went back for seconds :o)
Not a fan of olives so I substituted with butter beans.

Fantastic, cheap and tasty. I personally do not like olives so I substituted these for adzuki beans to add more fibre and to bulk it out. I didn't cook meal with 500g of mushrooms, around 300 instead. Served with mash. whole family (4) loved this. I will definately do this again but next time I'm going to try past

As others have said, this is a real winner in both terms of taste and speed of preparation and cooking. It's excellent stirred in with semi-wholewheat tortiglioni pasta and served with a side salad.

This is so easy and smells great while it's cooking. My husband was practically salivating and I'll definitely make it again.

My partner loves sausages so I always cook recipes with sausages in and guess what he loved it and so did I. I used green olives instead of black and think I would definitely use black next time. I served it with carrots, green beans and new potatoes, which, as Mark said, are great for soaking up the juices. Another fab midweek recipe.

Very quick and simple to prepair, cooked the sausages in a small pan prior to cooking in the larger pan to remove excess fats, much healthier, used Tesco Finest Cherry toms, currently only 49p (Half Price, 15th Feb) lovely texture and flavour. Was tempted to thicken sauce slightly, don't, great with potatoes which soaks us juices. Lovely to have found a recipes that use oregano as I bought loads back from Protugal, will make again, maybe pasta next time, yum
