Tomato based sausage casserole, a healthy(ish!) cheap family meal.
8 Good quality pork sausages, snipped/sliced into bite size
pieces (about 6 pieces per sausage)
Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
handful chestnut mushrooms, sliced
4 sundried tomatoes
Small glass red wine
jar of passata
1 Tsp sugar
1/2 tsp paprika
handful chopped basil
Gently fry the sausage in a large pan (a wok is good) in the olive oil until cooked through and golden brown.
Remove sausage and keep to one side. Now, in the same pan fry the onions and garlic untill softened. After 5 mins or so add the peppers, mushrooms and sundried tomatoes, cook for a further few mins then return the sausages to the pan.
turn the heat up high, add the red wine and cook for a few mins to reduce slightly.
Add the passata, sugar, basil and paprika and simmer for half an hour. (or as long as you want really the longer its left the better the taste its amazing reheated the next day!)
Season to taste if liked and serve with fluffy rice, crusty bread or with pasta. Try with any other veg in you like.
