Total cooking time is about 30 mins...
Start up the grill and put the sausages under, keep an eye on them, turn them every few minutes.
Chop up the onion, garlic, mushrooms and carrots, dribble a couple of teaspoons of cooking oil into a large pan and heat it up, then add the onions and the garlic and fry until the onion goes clear and soft.
Add the mushrooms and the carrots to the pan and fry off for 5 - 10 minutes.
chop up the tomatoes and chuck them in too, fry a little longer.
Add the tinned tomatoes and stir in, make sure everything is covered.
By now the sausages should be just about done. Take them out of the grill and chop them up into little chunks and add them to the pan.
Mix up the casserole mix with some boiling water. I normally only use a little water because I don't want to water everything down too much, this keeps it all nice and thick. Add it to the pan and stir it in.
Add the herbs, a couple of teaspoons worth of tomato puree and a generous helping of ketchup (about a couple of teaspoons again but I always go overboard) and let it all cook for about 5 - 10 minutes more, just to make sure everything has mixed together nicely and it's cooked through properly.
Should end up like a thick chunky mix with plenty of tomatoey goodness, almost looks like a bolognese but with sausages instead.
That's about it! Have it with pasta, have it with chips, have it with mash, have it however you want!
