Nice and easy, didn't need all the mushrooms, and had to add a little corn flour to thicken the sauce - so maybe don;t need all the stock. Good flavours, but not sure whether there was something missing.

Loved this, served it with tagliatelle and garlic bread. Think it will become a cold weather favourite. Quick and easy.

I make this recipe all the time, it's a weekly favourite. So easy and loads of flavour, I love it.

This is nice enough, but I made it with my home made totally wonderful sausages and they fell apart during the frying process. Maybe heavily processed ones would be better, but I felt rather cheated. Being in deeply rural France, English-style sausages are not available for a re-try...

This was disappointing. I made it based on the rave reviews and all the stars (which I normally find to be a good indicator) but found it just so-so and I wouldn't bother making again. Have had better sausage casseroles.

...alos, as someone mentioned above, a good quality beef stock with a splash of red wine makes a difference

I love this recipe, so easy and now one of my staples! I usually use a little more beef stock and make up some dumplings, yummy! I sometimes add some onion and fresh chilli if its knocking around also.

Love this recipe... Made it twice now using about 3/4 of the mushrooms. Have tosay it goes great with sweet potato mash!! Adds a little sweetness without taking away from a lovely sauce!

easy, and relatively hearty, but not very tasty at all
