I made this with Quorn sausages and vegetable bouillon, it was really good and easy to make, another mid-week winner meal.

I love this recipe and made it many times now and every-time and it comes out delicious, please please you do definitely need all the mushrooms they cook down into the most beautiful sauce, instead of sausages next time I'm thinking of serving this over lean steak and grilled/broiled vegetables on the side.

Lovely recipe with a couple of tweaks! Used Toulouse sausages and added chopped leeks and baby peppers. Let the sauce thicken quite a bit and served with pasta.. delish!

Delicious and so easy

A tasty casserole for warming you up in the winter. I added an onion and a green pepper and it makes four good portions. Only scored three stars because without my additions, not enough veg, and I've had better sausage casseroles. We had it with mash potato, which, as others have said, is perfect for mopping up the juice. We found the olives quite a strong flavour and although we liked it, I'll probably use less olives if I make it again.

Yum. Had this with potatoes. Easy peasy.

Yummy, sizzled the sausages with some red wine, added tom purée, a bay leaf and a splash of balsamic. Definitely don't need all those mushrooms.

Surprisingly good - such few ingredients really produced a fantastic meal. Added a few chillies and some capers to give it a bit more zing and was delicious. Will definitely do again.

Made this for my dinner tonight, but used too many stock cubes. However it was still delicious (if salty) and will be making it again! With less stock cubes this time.

would this still be as good without mushrooms? if not what else could be substituted?

Re the saturated fat content, you could adapt it to make it lower fat by forming turkey mince into little meatballs and replacing the olives with lower fat vegetables. The sauce is fairly low fat being tomato based and is very tasty.
