Delicious. Chucked some cherry tomatoes in too for a bit of extra flavour and juice. Think it would’ve been fine without the sauce to be honest.

Lovely and a hit with the husband and will go to the 'make again' recipe list. Next time I would just add the whole butternut squash and this time I had a pack of 6 sausages so it wouldn't really have fed 4. The only thing is that I think 2 tablespoons of mustard is far too much. I put 1 tablespoon in and it seemed pretty potent and so I left it at that.

I thought this was a great recipe. I did the beef and lentil cottage pie one day then this the next day (with the leftover mash as recommended in the recipe). Easy, pretty frugal, and tasty. I especially liked the mustard sauce.

We loved this. For the two of us, I used two small red onions, half a butternut squash and some good quality Cumberland sausages. I didn't have any sage so generously sprinkled with Italian herb seasoning and tossed everything with the olive oil. After tranferring the cooked sausages/veg to serving plates, I then stirred in 1 tsp flour, 130ml chicken stock and 3 tsp wholegrain mustard. I served it with green beans abd tenderstem broccoli. Delicious.

Great idea for a quick supper. I use gluten free sausages as we are unable to eat wheat products. I'm going to serve with buttery rice, but mash would be nice too. I cooked this in my Remoska. Very good quick meal.
