When I shared this dish on my Instagram Stories, it got such a great response that I knew that I had to post it here on the blog as a recipe post. At the time we were at the end of our food shop for that week and I was trying to use the last of the ingredients and create something that everyone would eat.

There were lots of clean plates at dinner time and my whole family enjoyed it, even my kids!  Sausages are such a versatile ingredient and lend themselves to pretty much anything. I love using them in a pasta sauce instead of traditional minced meat, but I think they work so well in stews and casseroles too. The meat s already flavoured with a mix of herbs and spices, which means that you don’t have to add an excessive amount of ingredients to the sauce for it to have an impact.

One-pot dishes are probably one of my favourite ways to cook. Not only does it mean less washing up, but they make cooking so simple. You literally just pop everything in the one cooking pot and let it simmer away until it’s ready. With busy modern-day life, this makes them the ideal option for dinner.

I couldn’t believe how easy this sausage stew was to put together.  After browning the sausages, I popped in the rest of the ingredients and let it all simmer and cook down so the sauce became richer and thicker.  Since I was cooking this in advance for dinner I had a lovely lunch with my baby girl while it was simmering on the hob.
