Another lovely recipe which I found on one of the BBC Food websites. So easy and fuss-free. Minimal cleaning up as well since all the cooking is done in the oven. Everything’s done in about 45 minutes tops. The sweet peppers and onions are cooked through but not limp which gives the dish a nice texture. The tomato based sauce is all basil-y and tasty and great for mopping up with the fresh garlic toast.

My kind of mid-week meal!

Baked Sausage Casserole
adapted from

8 pork sausages
1 yellow pepper, deseeded and chopped
1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into wedges
2 large red onions, cut into wedges
400g chopped tomatoes
250ml stock (vege or chicken)
Large handful of basil leaves
1 tsp of sugar
salt and pepper for seasoning

Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Put the sausages, pepper and onion into a roasting tin with a tiny bit of olive oil tossed in, then roast for 20 mins. Lower oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6, then tip tomatoes and stock over the sausages. Add sugar and most of the basil, season, then stir well. Roast for another 20 mins. Serve sprinkled with the remaining basil.

It's all about my gastronomical journeys, and sometimes an inedible thought or two. One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. ~Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright, Pavarotti, My Own Story This is my personal journey where I devote my attention to eating, cooking, experimenting and taking chances.
