This is an old family recipe that my Mother and Grandmother used to make... I have no idea where they got it from, it's scribbled in Gran's writing in my Mothers' cookbook :) We love it and it's a favourite weekend "easy meal".This recipe was a huge childhood favourite of mine, I adored it to bits, as did my cousins... now that I have made it as an adult again I see that my tastes must have changed.. and a perfect example of how your memory can play tricks on you... this a relatively bland recipe, far more than I remember... so now the light dawns why my Gran made it so often, My grandfather was the King of Bland and hated anything too spiced up... so if you are cooking for people like my Granddad and for kids, this recipe will hit the spot :)

Please Note: In NZ ketchup is called tomato Sauce.

Very interesting! I like the way you get the healthy veggies into the sauce and the kids really don`t know what in there. I did add garlic and fresh sage. As for the tomato sauce I used paste. Thanks for a different take on sausage!
