Method

  1. Fry the sausages in 1 tbsp oil in a casserole dish until brown. Remove. Tip in the carrots, celery and onion and cook for 10 mins, adding the chopped rosemary and half the garlic for the final min. Add the lentils, tomatoes and stock. Return the sausages, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 20 mins. Remove the lid and cook for a further 10-15 mins until lentils are soft. Season.

  2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes until tender. In another pan, heat the milk, remaining garlic and rosemary until just about to boil, then turn off heat. Drain the potatoes well.

  3. Sieve the hot milk over the rest of the potatoes and mash with the remaining oil, then season. Serve with the stew.

Delicious! I used a courgette instead of celery, and dried mixed herbs instead of rosemary. It made 4 decent sized portions too. I didn't think it really needed the mash though - it was very filling. It would have gone nicely with garlic bread instead!

This was delicious. Had loads of leftover sauce, so the next day I mixed in some chopped red chilli, spinach and creme fraiche and poured it over a baked potato...Yummy.

Despite adding a fresh green chilli, and a teaspoon of paprika, we found this quite bland. We ate it...so was ok ... but nothing special. The garlic and rosemary mashed potato was lovely though!!!

This was absolutely delicious! The sauce is absolutely gorgeous, rich and full of flavour. We had it with crusty bread.

Delicious, I made with sicilian sausages left over from my brother's wedding and multiplied the recipe by one and a half. The rest will go in the freezer today.
