Whole family loved this recipe, added some garlic and a splash of worcestershire sauce.

Lovely, quick, easy, tasty dinner. We always use a pack of 12 sausages (River Island Cumberland are fab!) for our family of 4 to ensure we are not left wanting more. Basil toasts are lovely too. Even used Laughing Cow Light Cheese Triangles for this to save wasting the best part of a cream cheese pack. Works brilliantly!

loved it... as did the 14 year old teenager and 19month toddler, we used carrots instead of yellow pepper, didn't add any sugar (did't see that until later). served with boiled potatoes and spring greens. love the idea of blending the sauce and using with pasta for the next day, will try that next time.

This recipe is easy and straight forward to do but tastes very good and is very wholesome.
I've made it a few times now and it never becomes boring, so big a thumbs up!

Like a previous reviewer i'm also on a diet and also used reduced fat sausages and it makes such a hearty low fat meal - no oil, veggies and sweet roasted onions yum! i served with steamed veggies and a baked potato. i've made this twice now and think i will keep coming back to this recipe during winter months. Hopefully one day i'll try it with the garlic toasts when i'm not watching the calories!

Lovely tasty casserole. I used low fat sausages and didn't make the garlic toasts as I am on a diet and by using the low fat sausages, it made a very low fat meal with some steamed veg. A new favourite for me and the hubby :)

Top marks! Tried this recipe on my wife's folks, who like traditional-type fare. It was a smash hit! It's so easy to make and fills the kitchen with beautiful aromas whilst it's cooking. Left the toasts (which I'll try next time) and we had winter veggies & new potatoes with it instead. Used the left over sauce & veg from the roasting pan to make a tasty soup simply by blitzing in a blender and adding more stock. Yum!

Made this for the first time last night and it went down a treat. The little toasts were a lovely addition and I served it with rice. A lovely winter warmer which will be made again. I added a dash of Worstershire sauce to give it a little more depth and a bit of extra flavour. I used pork and veal sausages.

This really was excellent. My husband asked me to make it more often and he usually doesn't like my cooking! :)

I made this for my husband and children to eat while I was at work, finishing it in the slow cooker. They said it was the best sausage casserole they had ever tasted! Even my son, who is a fussy eater, cleaned his plate. Like a previous reviewer I only used 2 onions as they were quite large.

This was one of the first BBC Good Food recipes I ever made and I've never gone back! Love how theres so little effort required, and there is so much veg. Don't always bother with garlic and basil toasts as its so easy to buy garlic bread instead, but they are nice.

I Made this last night for tea and it was sooo scrummy, The only thing I changed was, using one large brown onion and changing peppers to a large handful of mushrooms as this was for two people. Would Definitely recommend + my bf is quite fussy some times…..

HEAVEN!! I used fresh oregano instead of basil . I added some whole garlic cloves in the first step and used red pepper instead of yellow. Started with 150ml of stock and just topped up when needed. This is SO easy. Try with oregano, I think its a better compliment! Took about an hour on low temp. I didn't do the garlic toasts ;)

Really very tasty and quite summery way of eating sausages, it was really delicious. Halved the onions and doubled the peppers though which I think made it much more balanced. Have already given the recipe to my mum to make and will definitely be making again.

Made a few changes - 150ml stock, 2 onions, garlic & tomatoes with chilli - and enjoyed it very much!

This is a really quick and easy mid-week meal that tastes great. The only thing I change is that I never use quite as much vegetable stock as suggested (around 150ml instead) as it's not then as watery. I also never seem to have any fresh basil so don't bother and it still tastes great. I've added courgette in the past which adds to the veg intake - always a good thing!

A great meal to come home to after a cold winters day, very easy to prepare and very tasty. Will be making this again
