Had my boyfriend come to stay for a few days and as he eats meat and i don't, i had to get rid of spare sausages before he went.. typed it into bbc Good Food and this little gem popped up. Quick, simple and delicious! I also tried it with quorn and it was good too! My boyfriend even asked for the recipe to take home! Nice one :)

Absolutely yummy! To increase the veg content I added peas and chickpeas, I used chicken stock as didn't have vegetable and added garlic purée. I put the sausages in the oven for 25mins at fan 200 and added all the ingredients straight into the pan and cooked for 1 hour 45 mins. It was amazing! Definately one to make on a regular basis. (Didn't make the garlic toasts, had on its own).

Wonderfully easy and tasty. I've made this several times and my whole family enjoys it.

Very tasty, (even though I can't smell a thing with my cold *lol* ) Still, the kids liked it too and that's alway a bonus! I took the advice of another poster & blended the sauce. This will be cooked again for sure!

I make this all the time because it's delicious and only needs a few ingredients. I always add extra vegetables such as peas or sweetcorn and some cherry tomatoes near the end of the cooking time to increase my 5 a day count.

A brilliant, dead easy, chuck-it-all-in recipe. I too used much less onion than the recipe suggests and found the basil over powering first time round so drastically reduced it for the second go, which was perfect. I make it with mash and the great thing is there's no real need to add any extra veg as it's already packed full. A firm favourite.

I was making this for 2 people, so played around with the quantities a bit, using 6 sausages, 2 red onions, 1 yellow pepper, 1 tin tomatoes and 150ml of stock. I also added a tin of cannelini beans 10 mins from the end - a perfect one pot! There are extra veggies leftover, but not matter as having those another night with cous cous. Having read the other comments, I also had to make the garlic toasts and they were great!

Loved this dish, and even managed to feed my fussy ex chef partner who opted for seconds no less! I didn't have any Basil or Cream cheese for the bread but instead used Pesto and finely grated mild cheddar which worked remarkably well after grilling. We'll be having this dish again for sure!

I wasn't clear about the amount of sugar, with tomatoes and peppers a tbsp seemed too much used a tsp and it was lovely. A very easy recipe that was very very tasty - both of my girls 12 and 14 are a little fussy with new things and they loved it. Would recommend the toast for any appropriate occasion it was delicious - albeit I used more like 50 to 75 g of the cream cheese! All this is coming from a father on holiday who rarely cooks new things. Recommended.

Lovely tasty dish. I added extra veg - courgettes and french beans.

Loved by all the family, just used a little less stock as my husband isn't keen on runny sauces!!! Just making it for a second time tonight.

Delicious. Made a few additions - mushrooms and red wine (everything tastes better with a glug of wine!!) Served with the garlic toast and also some potato slices. The family loved it and it was so easy to make

This is fab, sometimes I have it with garlic bread, sometimes I just have baby potatoes with loads of butter. Yummy

This website has become my favorite website and this is my favorite recipe so far. Really easy to make and tastes amazing!

The recipe for the garlic toasts I found not nearly enough for 8 slices of bloomer toast - only for about 2 large slices!! So I doubled the recipe for 4 toasts.
The sauce could have done with a bit of thickening as it was very watery, but the overall taste of everything was great. I too found 4 onions too much and only used 3 red onions.
Served with mash and the leftovers was great for lunch!

This is soo much tastier than I had imagined when looking at the ingredients. Very easy to make, I've made it twice now. Makes low fat sausages taste good. I served it with brown rice.
