Used chipolata sausages whole, added peas, carrots and sautéed some mushrooms in garlic, then made the cheese sauce in the same pan. Put everything together in an ovenproof dish as the recipient says - bakes for half an hour. Was amazing 10/10 would recommend and it gets and extra couple portions of your 5 a day in!

Adults loved it, children ate enough of it for me to want to make it again :) Used leftover cooked sausages and some canned sweetcorn.

I made this for two. Used 4 sausages and pretty much halved all ingredients. It was really nice. My husband is a fussy eater and was not keen on the idea of kale, but it was a success! I will definitely make this again.
