Sausage and lentil casserole

I decided to try a recipe from Louisa's blog, The Really Good Life. The article and ingredients should be at the below link:

As is always the case when using up what you have, I didn't have puy lentils so used yellow split peas (a bit of a mistake as they took forever to cook and in the end, had to have them al dente). As you can see from my photograph of ingredients, I also substituted and added other things. I used a few fresh herbs such as rosemary, thyme and sage. Also added 2 tomatoes, a courgette, some pancetta and of course, the split peas!

The upshot of all this messing about was a lovely meal, served with vegetables (hubby had carrots and peas with his) and enough for another day as well. I have high hopes that the split peas will be more cooked second time around! I used her full recipe but with only 4 sausages (or 1/2 lb), de-skinned and rolled into little balls.


  1. I've made a note of this one, it looks yummy.

    1. Ooh, I want to make that for our tea now :)

      I love the idea of pancetta and courgettes in it instead of the full amount of sausages - I'll try that next time :)
