  • 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.

Simply delicious. I added some beef stock and also some tomato puree with all the ingredients listed. Great with pasta. Will cook again!

This recipe is delicious for a quicka and easy meal. My daughter and i thoroughly enjoyed it. We added 1 teaspoon of chilli powder due to the weather being so cold and served it with mashed potato. Gorgeous. Thanks :)

I doubled up the ingredients (we're a large family) and found a 500g carton of passata was only just about enough.

Amazing. I added chorizo, cannellini beans and some chilli. The beans make it into a proper stew.

I tried this the other night and it was great! I added my own little touches on it. As i served with spaghetti as a pasta dish, i added a finger chilli, lots of paprika, more red wine than instructed, a boquet garni and once the source had been cooking for 10 mins i added 3 more cloves of garlic raw and by the time i served the garlic was soft juicy and full of flavour. I also used chilli butchers sausages from Tesco and I thought that it really worked. I probably wouldn't serve as a casserole just because i adapted it to become a pasta sauce but definitely one for the recipe folder!

I substituted the sausage for rump steak and the the rest of the ingredients for pastry, gravy and chips the result was fab!!

Brilliant - half a teaspoon crushed chillis never goes amiss in casseroles either! I added in potatoes to make it easier to just get out of the freezer and heat up:)

I followed the recipe substituting a little dried chilli for the paprika and it was wonderful, great to freeze and delicious served with fresh French bread
