Very tasty. Mine took a lot longer then 20 minutes (after 20 minutes I turned the oven right up to brown the sausages and to get some caramelisation on the onions and pumpkin. I don't get the caraway seeds - I don't think the aniseed flavour added anything. Will definitely cook again.

I made this last night and it went down very well! I browned the sausages in a pan beforehand as suggested and added apple to the roasting dish. Instead of caraway seeds I simply mixed in some mustard with the gravy and I also substituted the pumpkin with sweet potato. Thoroughly scrumptious, easy to make and quick. I left it for 25 minutes and then for a further 5 mins after the gravy was added and everything was done to perfection. Will definitely be making again and chucking whatever veg I have in the house in the dish.

Very delicious! I added some bacon and and some sliced apple before roasting which really added to the autumnal feel and taste of this dish. Also economical and very easy to adjust according to what you have in the fridge/cuboard.

Delicious. I used pumpkin and squash. Had no caraway so used mustard seeds which worked really well. Had no gravy so put small amount of veg stock in which made it moist enough. Cooked it for 45-50 mins. Definitely added to my list of dishes. Thanks.

Love this recipe but we changed it a bit to suit what we had in the kitchen. We blanched and roasted carrots in with the pumpkin and onion. Used mustard seed instead of caraway and we didn't have the gravy so we used vegetable stock, with added honey and garlic. Delicious served with mash or roasts.

One of my ultimate favourites. It's also nice to use butternut squash instead of the pumpkin slices.

Great, easy but very tasty recipe, I will definitely cook this again! I added more veg to the roasting tin and it worked lovely.

Great recipe. The caraway seeds seem to work really well with the squash (I used butternut squash rather than pumpkin). Also took longer than 20 mins for me, but I was making a larger quantity so that may be why
