Step 1: Total cooking time is about 30 mins…
Step 3: Start up the grill and put the sausages under, keep an eye on them, turn them every few minutes.
Step 5: 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.
Step 7: Add the mushrooms and the carrots to the pan and fry off for 5 – 10 minutes.
Step 9: chop up the tomatoes and chuck them in too, fry a little longer.
Step 11: Add the tinned tomatoes and stir in, make sure everything is covered.
Step 13: 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.
Step 15: 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.
Step 17: 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.
Step 19: Should end up like a thick chunky mix with plenty of tomatoey goodness, almost looks like a bolognese but with sausages instead.
Step 21: That’s about it! Have it with pasta, have it with chips, have it with mash, have it however you want!
