Heat oil in a large, deep saucepan or heavy bottomed casserole dish, cook the sausages for 3 to 4 minutes in a high heat until browned, then remove. Tip in remaining oil, onion, garlic and pepper, then cook, about 5 mins more until softened. Add lentils and sausages to the pan with the stock and wine, if using.
Season with salt and pepper, bring up to the boil, then simmer for 40-50 mins until lentils have softened and sausages are cooked through. Garnish with parsley and serve with plenty of crusty bread.
