Just finished cooking this, not that there is much cooking involved, it's really easy to make. Tastes really nice as well, the Basil goes really nicely with it and that flavour melts into the broth nicely.

Lovely! I use sweet sausages (+ sweet chili or apple) and bacon too, makes it nice and sweet. I also add red wine at the beginning and a tiny speck of chili. well worth it!

This was really yummy... my other half made it for me recently and he found it super simple to make... and OMG, the others are not kidding about the garlic bread.... DElish! It is going to be one that keeps returning to our table each week.

The first time I made this it was a bit watery and didn't go down that well with my tribe, but I decided to give it another go and this time added some red wine and chilli powder and whizzed the sauce ingredients through the blender, it made all the difference and there was clean plates all around this time. Oh and I used half the amount of onion aswell.

Easy dish to prepare and make.
Garlic toasts were really good, dont think i'll be buying garlic bread again.

Try changing the type of sausage to find your own taste, also add a chopped courgette and using different types of fresh tomatoes make for a different taste too.

This is a great recipe. I used red, yellow and green peppers and also added some red wine as suggested by others. I reduced the stock to 200ml to account for the wine and I cooked this in a casserole dish on the hob. Fantastic flavours and the left over sauce was great over pasta.

I've made this a few times now (with quorn sausages) and it is very popular. Once, by accident, I picked up a tin of the chopped tomatoes with chillies and this works even better.

Didn't turn out as well for me as some of the other posters, I found the onion still a bit crunchy and the sauce a bit watery. But a great idea so next time I think I will just make it on the hob so I have more control.

This was delicious and couldn't have been easier. Great with sauteed potatoes. The sauce goes a long way.

Fabulous recipe. I add a can of cannelini beans when I put in the tomatoes and stock - delicious!

Great mid-week easy recipe. I used Vegetarian Lincolnshire sausages and for quickness, pan fried them in Olive Oil fried first with the onion and peppers. I then added the rest of the ingredients including a little chilli and red wine as recommended above. I also added some green lentils which made the sauce a bit more substantial. Froze the leftovers for a 'shove in the microwave' lunch. Perfect!

Tried this a few months ago with great success,the kids loved it and we have done it several times since.I even managed to get my daughter to eat the peppers.We also add a leak to it and some garlic.Its a simple dish that can really warm you up on a cold day.
