  • 1 onion

  • 1 tbsp tomato puree

  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup

  • 1 tin chopped tomato

  • 1 red pepper

  • 300ml stock (made with bouillon powder usually)

  • 1 tin chickpeas or beans

  • 8 sausages

  • 1 splash balsamic vinegar


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
  2. Brown sausages in casserole dish. Meanwhile, chop the onions, red pepper, and open the tin tomatoes.
  3. When the sausages have browned, add the onion and pepper and let them heat through for a couple of minutes.
  4. Chuck in the tin of tomatoes, the tomato puree, ketchup and balsamic vinegar (and drained, rinsed chickpeas, if using.)
  5. Add as much stock as you need to cover ingredients, then grind in some pepper.
  6. Bung in the oven for 45 (and leave while you put child(ren) to bed.)
  7. It's very forgiving and will be fine to eat in 45 mins but is happy to stay put for an hour plus, just check the sauce isn't evaporating and add a bit more stock if necessary.

Handy Hint

Chuck some jacket potatoes in the microwave while you're putting casserole together, then in oven with casserole and you're sorted.

    Very easy and demolished by toddler - looking forward to my serving in an hour or so!

    Really easy and tasty recipe. I sometimes add some kabanos to give it a smoky flavour. Great with mash or jackets.

    I cooked this without the red pepper as I didn't have one and I used red kidney beans. It was really delish and so easy.

    Can you do this with veggie sausages?

    I try and make this in the few minutes before I put my toddler to bed, which means it's ready when husband gets home...otherwise it's a really easy one to do once the chap's in bed. Low stress, low price, and feels like a proper meal.
