  • 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


    1. Gently fry the sausage in a large pan (a wok is good) in the olive oil until cooked through and golden brown.
    2. 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.
    3. turn the heat up high, add the red wine and cook for a few mins to reduce slightly.
    4. 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!)
    5. Season to taste if liked and serve with fluffy rice, crusty bread or with pasta. Try with any other veg in you like.

Fantastic recipe, very easy. Didn't have fresh basil or sundries tomatoes but still produced beautiful sauce. Try it!

This was a really nice alternative to packet mixes and won't be going back. Everyone loved it. Great with tiger bread and put in the fridge day or two beforel eating plus I used 12 sausages 680g instead of 8, for a family of 5 delicious!

Forgot to say...... After starting it on the hob, I put it in a casserole in the oven at 140c for 2 hours for convenience. It made a rich concentrated sauce. Served it with and buttery carrots with thyme (also on good food website)

Really lovely. Used up some Christmas leftovers lurking in the fridge. No mushrooms, no passata, no basil and didn't want to open another bottle of red so soon after the festivities. Instead, I used a tin of tomatoes, a little water and red wine vinegar. Added some chopped bacon. I cut each sausage into 4 with scissors and took the skins off. It was really easy. Made enough for the freezer, the dinner that keeps on giving! :-)

Perfect for a play date tea and later for grown ups. Loved by 1 year and 4 year olds alike (oh and grown ups too).

This was a real winner in my house ! I cook the casserole in the morning and left it in my slow cooker for the rest of the day , the sausages were so tender and delicious. Will be making this again very soon .

Love this recipe - we have it every other week with rice and garlic bread. I agree adding a little chilli gives it a well needed kick on a chilly Autumnal night.
