Sausage and Tomato Casserole with Fresh Basil
As I hadn't had sausages for a long time, so while I was in my local supermarket I decided to get some for the next morning’s breakfast.
I bought a fairly large pack and had two for breakfast the next morning, what to do with the rest?
Make something simple, tasty and comforting, Sausage Casserole!!.
Yes I know its summer but here in the UK at the moment it’s not much like it.
So to make this great tasty meal for 4 you will need;
8 - Pork sausages
3 – Large carrots
8 – Medium sized potatoes
1 – Medium sized onion
150 ml – Red wine
1 can – Chopped tomatoes
1 – Beef stock cube
200 ml – Water
1 dsp – Corn flour (made into a paste with a little water)
A little Olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper to season
Gently fry the sausages in a little olive oil until browned all over,
Roughly chop the carrots and onions, and quarter the potatoesand then put sausages,carrots, potatoes and onion in a casserole dish.
Pour over the red wine, tomatoes and water and then sprinkle over the mixed herbs, stock cube, salt and pepper; lastly tear some fresh basil leaves over.
Place in a pre-heated oven at 180 C.
After 40 minutes take it out of the oven and stir in the corn flour paste. At this point it’s a good idea to taste the liquid to see if you need to add more seasoning.
Now place back in the oven for a further 40 minutes and you’re done.
