Notes

  • Note 1 There is a lot of room here to use your favourite sausages. Choose thick sausages over thin ones, to maximise the juices flowing from them into the pan. Drizzle these juices over the dish when serving. 
  • Note 2 You will see this in the instructions, however, the mushrooms are the fastest vegetable to cook, so we add them after the 1st initial 15 mins of cooking. 
  • Note 3 You can be a bit haphazard here. I usually pierce the biggest of the cherry tomatoes and do this as a quick 2 min job. It doesn't matter if every single tomato is not pierced. You can always squash them with your fork when eating for extra juice.
