I am not a vegetarian but I did try this for a BBQ for a friend who is veggie, and made it with quorn type sausages which she said were lovely overall. We have this dish quite a lot, it's high in carbs but so moreish. A guilty pleasure

This is a really nice simple recipe and good comfort food. I use chipolata sausages. Usually I'll make an extra portion which I can heat up later in the week when I don't have time to cook. I normally add some rucola at the end and I stir through a hand of grated parmesan to make it a little bit creamy

i added a tin of chopped tomatoes, garlic and chillies to it, was lovely, don't think i'll use rosemary next time, was a bit over powering with it

As stated in previous comments, found it best to cook the sausages first and this makes it easier to cut into pieces. A hit with all the family including son who normally turns his nose up at sausages!

Really really delicious!! I made it vegetarian by using Quorn sausages instead, I also added chopped tomatoes and creme fraiche for the extra sauce as suggested - LOVELY!! I also cooked the sausages in sweet chili sauce, made a delicious flavour but it spits at first! x

As everyone is saying, a filling quick meal, easy to prepare. I used Frantic Flapjack's idea (19 Nov 08) and also added a dash of worcester sauce. Will certainly make this again.
