  • 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.

This recipe is an excellent base recipe for sausage casserole. I ended up having to substitute a good few ingredients due to my proximity to a supermarket and what I had available in my cupboards. I subbed; Red wine for a good glug of port Passata for a tin of chopped tomatoes Fresh basil for chopped basil from a jar Onion for red onion Chestnut mushrooms for a handful of dried mixed mushrooms Paprika for smoked paprika. While it may seem that I've swapped out too many ingriedients for the finished dish to represent the original recipe I was certainly using the recipe as the backbone to my dish, which was lovely. I'm having leftovers for lunch today. I don't think they'll last past 9.30am.

Had some sauages that needed using, found this dish, simple very enjoyable. Replaced the passata with a small sun dried tomato pasta sauce

I made this for my family tonight and it went down a treat, I didn't have any sundried tomatoes so used cherry tomatoes instead. Delicious and easy, everyone had seconds!

This was wonderful and really simple. I used smoked paprika and unfortunately I didn't have any fresh basil to hand. Only problem was I had to open a bottle of red to put some in this casserole and well, you can guess what happened to the rest!!!!! I served it with spaghetti and it went down a treat!

I didn't actually put the sundried tomatoes, paprika and basil (didn't have this at home), but it was still brilliant. So much better than the alternative powder packages.
