Delicious. A wonderful stand-by when I want proper food but don't feel like cooking.

Took at least twice as long as stated on a much higher heat, the sausages didn't taste of the extra flavourings (and they were good quality sausages which I have had before), there was no stickiness and little flavour. The juices in the bottom were watery. No idea why this didn't work for me.

Update from last post - used 1 red pepper and 1 yellow pepper but kept all the other ingredients the same. Cooked 35/40 minutes as other people suggested. Also added a can of cannoli beans to make it easy one pan meal. Really good.

Really tasty. Next time though I'll be more generous with the balsamic and honey so will have more sticky sauce. Only had garlic bread but will use mash in future.

Such an easy way to make a delicious meal from just a few ingredients. We ate ours in the garden with new potato salad and it worked just as well as the "winter warmer" version with heaps of steaming mash. Always a good one!

I made this with chicken sausages (the chipolata style ones) - really delicious, easy to make and all on one roasting tin! I served mine with homemade soda bread to soak up the juices. Lovely!

A really yummy and tasty dish, surprisingly so. I did fry off the sausages before I put them in with all the other ingredients, so that they looked a bit more roasted, also, the 1st time I cooked this dish I omitted the tomatoes and I do think it tastes all the more richer for not adding them. Served this with waitrose ready made garlic mash and garlic wilted spinach. A keeper :)

This recipe was delicious. I, like most other commenters have said, cooked the sausages for 40 minutes instead of 20 and they were perfect. The honey and balsamic really add flavour to a classic English dish. Me and my family really enjoyed it, so please try this recipe. It's so easy!

very easy recipe though I left the sausages in for 40 minutes so they browned and looked more appetising. served with a mash of parsnips,sweet potato and potato-very nice!

Tasty! I deliberately left out the thyme sprigs as I used chilli flavoured sausages. It was the first time I have tried this recipe, so easy, I also served it with a jacket potato and it went down well. Might well use mash next time though.
