Such a tasty recipe! I tweaked it by using leek leaves in place of onions, as I'm intolerant, and also added 250g chantenay carrots and a handful of chopped mushrooms with the tomatoes. The sauce was nice and thick - no need for thickening. I used 1tsp of demerara sugar, as it doesn't say how much. Clean plates all round, and will definitely make again.

Good basis for inspiration but my version much better! 2 Red onions, 2 cloves garlic, 1 red pepper, 2 carrots (thinly sliced) 10m at 220 deg Sausages, 1 tsp smoked paprika for 10m or so Tin chopped tomatoes, 250ml vegetable stock (Knorr Stock Pot), 2 tbsp tomato purée, tin of pinto beans, 2 bay leaves, 1/2 tsp mixed herbs, s&p, 20m at 200 deg

So tasty yet so easy, a staple mid-week meal in our house. I often half the onions as we find 4 can overpower the dish.

Not sure about the sugar? I make mine with: rosemary, thyme, worcestershire sauce, tin of tomatoes, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper, 250ml water, oxo cube, couple of bay leaves, one large chopped carrot, one medium chopped onion, one chopped pepper, punnet of chopped chestnut mushrooms, tin of sweetcorn, tin of peas, plus sausages (or quorn ones) - 45 mins in the oven at 200 degrees and loads of mash! or you can put tinned potatoes into the casserole instead.

We had this last night and it was lovely. I also used less onions and more peppers and i substituted the veg stock for a sausage casserole mix that was 50p. Mixed that with the 250ml of liquid (water) and poured it over. It stopped it being runny and was delicious. Also served it with mash and not the garlic toasts. Clean plates all round.

a rather poorly written recipe. No mention of quantities for the sugar (I won't be using any but if I did, I'd stick to no more than one or two teaspoons) plus the toast recipe is hiding under 'tips' which makes zero sense given the toast is a fundamental part of the recipe according to the title. 250ml seems like a lot of stock for a 20min cook time, too. I'm going to scale the stock back a little, add a tablespoon of no added salt tomato paste to thicken and enrich the sauce plus a splash of maple syrup in place of the sugar. Hopefully it'll be good because I love one-pan recipes!

I've made this a couple of times - I'd recommend adding a bit less veg stock as it is a bit watery with 250ml but still delicious either way! Used different sausages both times, couple of peppers and couple red onions. The garlic toasts are a great side.

Went down a treat. A little sweet for me, so if I made it again, I'd alter the receipe. I added garlic, probably be nice with a bit of fresh spinach on top
