I cooked this for about 10 minutes longer than the recipe as I wasn't convinced that the sausages were cooked. I also added some sweet potatoe chunks to bulk out the recipe and served it with crusty bread. Fabulous tasting and would definitely cook again!!

Great recipe. I added mushrooms as I had some, but next time will try the chickpeas and butter beans. Took a little longer than the recipe suggested for the onions to cook through. Served with the mustard mash, and peas and it went down a treat.

I did this and also added in Pink Lady apples and a few fennel seeds. It made it taste completely different and yet still a cheap dish.

This is a great, flexible midweek meal. We didn't have any tomatoes or peppers in and had vegetables to use up, so we roasted the sausages with butternut squash, onion, iron cap squash, courgette, sweet potatoes, a few cloves of garlic and some fresh thyme. The olive oil and balsamic vinegar gave the vegetables and sausages a lovely sauciness. We added some halved black olives for the last 10 minutes or so for a different flavour and texture. We also put in two chillis sliced in half to give a gentle spiciness to the dish. I'll make this again, and will carry on experimenting...

Anyone tried this in a slow cooker ? with precooked sausages x

We make this with Quorn sausages for an even healthier and just as tasty version. This is now one of our favourites - quick and easy to make and really delicious.

Delicious, didn't use honey as didnt have any and cooked for a lot longer than advised - 50 mins instead of 25 to brown the sausages and give the veg a stickier texture

Went down a treat with the grown ups but not so much with the kids. Used herb, pork and bean sausages and added cannelini beans towards the end.

Delicious! Very versatile dish. I only had 1 red pepper so threw in some jarred roasted peppers at the same time as the tomatoes. I also cubed a sweet potato which I put in at the same time as the onion. Yummy.

Very easy to do after a long day at work. Used Morrisons Caramelized Onion sausages which were yummy and served with M&S microwave mash so minimum effort. Really enjoyed it and will def do again for mid-week.

I used vegetarian sausages and really enjoyed this dish, as did the family

I love this recipe and have cooked it a few times, I cook the veg as per the instructions but as I tend to buy quite cheap sausages I bake them in a seperate pan (drizzled with a bit of extra balsamic and honey) because otherwise the amount of fat that comes out of them gives the veg a really horrible greasy coating. I usually serve them with buttery mash however I ran out of potatoes last time and had to add a tin of kidney beans instead, it was wonderful! Might try mixed beans in a tomato sauce next time as another user suggested.

Lovely way of serving sausages, and no greasy hob to clean after frying!

Great quick 'one pot' recipe. Added new potatoes in skins and some baby chorizo's to add a bit of spice and it was delicious. Does take slightly longer in oven to make sure the sausages are browned though, but just throw it all in a tray and forget about it.. easy!

A fantastic recipe and so easy. I have now made this twice and since my children don't rate the veggies that much, I combined the leftover veg plus juice with some couscous. Delicious!

What a fantastic recipe. The balsamic vinegar adds a lovely sweetness to the vegetables. My children (aged 12 and 6) loved this recipe too. I stirred through some butter beans at the end and there were enough leftover vegetables to combine them into a herby couscous which we had the next day with a picnic.
