  • 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.

Really nice casserole! Prepped it in the morning and regretted it by the afternoon as the sun was beating down. Not good weather for a casserole, but us and our 1 year old son loved it. Served with roast spuds. Quantity was just about right for 2 adults and 1 child, with another portion left over for the next day. Will definitely make again and hopefully get the full benefit in the colder weather! I think the sun dried tomatoes added a fuller tomato taste, I imagine much better than just using the passata. Best members recipe I've tried yet!

12 out of 10, lovely recipe - far better than you expect. I used M&S chorizo flavoured sausages, added a can of haricot beans (similiar would do)and used smoked paprika (and a little extra wine of course), finished it off in a casserole dish in the oven for 1 and 1/2 hrs. Will certainly use this recipe again. Great with culcannon/roast potatoes and the left overs with pasta & garlic bread the following day. I'm sure it would freeze well - but doubt there would be any left to freeze. I would even serve this at a relaxed dinner party.

Made this tonight, boys had it with pasta and I had brown rice. It was simple and fairly quick. Although I reduced it, it was a little thin for pasta and would be better with some sort of bean added, i.e. haricot blanc, for substance and served with crusty bread. I might also throw in a few chilli flakes to warm slightly and add a bit of depth to the flavour.

I have made this recipe loads of times since finding it here and I've got to say it has become a firm family favourite! The kids absolutely love it and its a great way to get veg inside them (finely chopped of course). Easy to make, delicious and inexpensive - perfect!

This was a big hit with my family - I slightly pre-cooked the sausages in the oven first, and in the meantime added the rest of the ingredients to my slow cooker. Actually a good way of adding some extra things that need using up - I managed to sneak in some diced carrots and peas (without the kids noticing). I then left it for 5-6 hours. Went down a treat. Thanks, Helen!

Cooked this last night and it was absolutely delicious! I didn't add sundried tomatoes because I used some lovely sausages I found in ASDA - debbie & andrew's Sicilian pork sausages with garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, basil and mozzarella - yummy ... will use the recipe again when I have friends round for supper, with a couple of different flavours of mash and savoy cabbage ... thanks for the recipe Helen.

4th or 5th time making this now keep adding bits and pieces each time all the family really like it a definate favourite. A great dish to put extra veg to keep the kids 5 a day on track.

Made this in an emergency when unexpected family turned up, was really tasty and there were clean plates all round! Added a tin of cannellini beans to make it a hearty meal.
