I followed the basic recipe, but in a seperate pan I cooked off a chopped onion and half a chopped red and green pepper then added them to the main dish ten minutes before serving, it worked very well because it added extra taste and body.

I felt that this dish needed some veg so i added in some courgette, onion and yellow pepper. It was lovely.

Perfect comfort food for a cold winters day. I used hole button mushrooms which worked really well. Definitely a keeper!

Really easy to do and really tasty, I've also tried with Quorn sausages instead of low fat and these were great too.

Yummy - really easy & very tasty. Used pork stock instead of beef - worked really well. Partner loved it (he previously thought a packet mix was the way to go!)

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 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!

Very tasty and easy to make. Will definately be doing this one again!

A great hit! It was easy to make (I doubled the quantity as we had friends round!)

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.
