    My kids love sausages, but I must admit I am a bit boring when it comes to being creative, love all these ideas, I know my kids will eat all of these and they have some fresh vegetables hidden inside too, my 2 year old is so fussy.ReplyCancel

    Sausage pasta is a very cheap meal in our house. I am a vegetarian so I have to do two separate meals. One fort partner and daughter then one for me. Sausage pasta is my favourite to make as it is done so quickly. I cook 4 meat sausages and 2 veggie sausages then boil pasta up and add a jar of pasta sauce. When the sausages are cooked, I chop them up and put into separate bowls and add the sauce and serve with garlic bread or salad. Costs me roughly £2.00 to make that. Thanks for the sausage roll recipe! I will definitely try that as my partner and daughter love sausage rolls! XReplyCancel

    These were a bit fiddlier than I expected (I accidentally whizzed my veggies to mush in the Thermomix!), but once they were cooked- delicious! My kids can’t stop devouring them, and I’ve got heaps in the freezer for my next ‘I can’t be bothered’ easy night. Great recipe! :D ReplyCancel

    Sorry, when do you add the carrots and zucchini? (I’m going to try adding it with the stock and hope they get cooked long enough) Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      sorry Cynthia, I forgot to add it, your right, put in when returning sausages to pan. Hope you enjoy it. I have also decreased the curry to 1/2- 1 1/2 tbs as we like spicy food, but others may not enjoy it as spicy, I usually add about 1 tbs.ReplyCancel
