Amazing Sausage Casserole

I was really stuck one day with what to make with a huge pack of sausages I had bought in special. I came across this recipe on BBC Goodfood and safe to say, it was perfect! 

Ingredients 

  • 8 lean sausages, grilled.
  • 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 tin of cannellini beans
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • handful chopped basil

Method

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, 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 and serve with mashed sweet or regular potato if you are having high carb, or mixed veg if low carb.
