This comforting one-pot casserole, makes a wonderfully warming and filling dish, perfect for sharing at the dinner table on a chilly evening. Serve with creamy mashed potato or rice and crisp green vegetables.


  • 8 pork sausages
  • 4 potatoes, peeled & cubed
  • 4 carrots, peeled & cubed
  • 4 sticks celery, sliced
  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 sprigs thyme, leaves picked
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsps tomato paste
  • 400ml good quality vegetable stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt and pepper


Step 1

Turn the oven to 180°C. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based oven proof casserole pot or dish.

Step 2

Lightly brown and turn the sausages on all sides, over a medium high heat. This browing will give good colour to the dish. Remove the sausages from the casserole pot and set them aside to prepare the vegetables.

Step 3

Add the chopped onion to the casserole pot and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes, until the onion is soft. Add the garlic, paprika and thyme and cook for a further minute.

Step 4

Add the chopped potatoes, carrots and celery and stir everything around in the casserole pot so all the vegetables are coated and mixed. Cook for 5 minutes.

Step 5

Add the chopped tinned tomatoes, tomato paste, vegetable stock and bay leaves. Season and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the browned sausages back to the pot.

Step 6

Place the casserole into the oven. Cook for 40-60 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through. Serve hot.
