Ready In:




  • Butter a heavy, heatproof dish.
  • Place the sausages in the pan with the oil and set over a medium heat.
  • Brown them on all sides very lightly.
  • Scatter over the shallots and cook for a minute or so, then add all the other ingredients except the parsley.
  • Cover and simmer for 15 minutes till the sausages are tight and tender.
  • Check from time to time that the liquid has not completely evaporated- there should be just enough left to make a bit of a sauce with.
  • Lift out the sausages, drop in a large knob of cold butter and stir in till the sauce thickens.
  • Scatter parsley and serve hot.

    My husband loves sausages and so this was a real bonus to find this recipe and having all the ingredients on hand. I used lamb sausages & used white wine and served with minted boiled potatoes and a mix of cauliflower, broccoli and carrots steamed. A real 'keeper' in this house :) Update: The second time I made this I used red wine and beef sausages. Both make for a great dish. :)

    We really enjoyed this, it's a real comfort dish and was great with mash and steamed vegetables. I can't understand why the parmesan needs to go in with the wine and stock as even on a very low heat it stuck to the bottom of the pan. I would rather add it to the finished dish just before I added the butter. And is 1 tablespoon of butter added with the other ingredients and then another knob added at the last? We only added the knob at the end.

    I knew when I read Jen's review that we would love this and I wasn't wrong, it's fabulous. I too used low fat lamb sausages and the sausages really did take on so much more flavour from the white wine/stock combo. I didn't have shallots so used an onion instead. Served with a mix of steamed veggies. Great, easy to make, family filling meal!

    Really simple and tasty. I replaced the parmesan with a small amount of cheddar, and used gourmet sausages from my local farm shop. Will be making this again. Thanks

    This meal was a huge hit with my family. It was easy to make, smelled and tasted delicious. Was very rich in flavour. I added a large tbs of tomato paste to the recipe. Servied with mashed potato and green beans, I will make this again for sure!


This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="">
